Zinc is an uncommon, low-value metal primarily useful in the creation of alloys. It is smelted from sphalerite. Note that, unlike sphalerite itself, refined zinc is not magma-safe, or even fire-safe, and will melt in a grass fire.

Zinc may be combined with other metals at a smelter to form the following alloys:

Zinc is the second-lightest normal metal after Aluminum, and so a reasonable alternative to wood for making bins, barrels and pots.
