'''Nickel''' is an uncommon, low-value, [[magma-safe]] [[metal]] used for the creation of [[nickel silver]] (note that nickel silver is not magma-safe). However, the zinc required for nickel silver is often better saved for producing [[brass]], which is more than twice as valuable as nickel silver. It can also be used to create most metalcrafting and construction objects. It can only be smelted from [[garnierite]]. Nickel is the cheapest of the four magma-safe metals and thus is the easiest minecart metal to buy if you're using it for magma.

Nickel is an uncommon, low-value, magma-safe metal used for the creation of nickel silver (note that nickel silver is not magma-safe). However, the zinc required for nickel silver is often better saved for producing brass, which is more than twice as valuable as nickel silver. It can also be used to create most metalcrafting and construction objects. It can only be smelted from garnierite. Nickel is the cheapest of the four magma-safe metals, and, thus, is the easiest minecart metal to buy if you're using it for any sort of work with magma.

Nickel round cabochons, when properly heated, are an excellent tool for !!SCIENCE!! involving the flammability of various substances.
