About...

Magnesium, Beryllium, Calcium, Strontium, Barium, and Radium are all the Alkali earth metals.

Properties- Shiny. Silvery White. Low densities. Low melting points. Low boiling points.

Many of these can be found in the earths crust. They can be dug up and found in the ground in big amounts.

Beryllium is mostly used in military products. Magnesium is used for industrial uses, they use it to reinforce metals like aluminum. Calcium is mostly used as a reducing agent that is used to separate other metals from the ore. Strontium and Barium don't have as many uses they are used in fireworks and in vacuum tubes. Radium does not have as many uses due to its radioactivity it you st to be in paint but now is not.
