Soneni Ndlovu

I am a life- changer
Mixed with copper, or nickel, I elevate their conductive abilities.
Situated in the second period of the second group, I am neither silver nor white,
Just found in between,
Several different mineral species

I am soft and light weight,
Though beware, I am heavy weight,
When it comes to toxicity.
Inhalation comes with inflammation,
But I am not all bad,
I am a transparent reflector
The x-factor for any x-ray
