Background Niobium is a gray, soft, rare ductile transition metal. Found in pyrochlore and columbite, it was originally discovered and named columbium. In 1950, the name was officially changed to niobium.
Superalloys Niobium in the form of high purity ferroniobium and nickel niobium are used in superalloys. These superalloys are used in rocket subassemblies, jet engine components, combustion equipment and heat resisting equipment.
Jewelry Niobium is physiologically inert, so it is a good metal to be used in jewelry and internal medical devices such as pacemakers.
Glass Niobium can be added to glass to produce a higher refractive index. A higher refractive index allows for thinner corrective glasses.
