METALS AND MINERALS

You are a happy investor today if you own a precious metals or minerals fund or ETF. These particular investments are considered to be volatile, however, if you look at past performance it is hard to ignore production.

Take, for instance, the Vanguard Precious Metals and Mining Fund (VGPMX). Since inception back in 1984 it has earned over 8%. Not too shabby. Also, in December this fund paid it's annual dividend at a whopping $1.09 per share on top of a long-term capital gain of $0.19 per share.

This fund is honestly probably the best managed and incurs the best returns year in and year out. If you are interested in purchasing this fund, there are several different affordable ways to buy in.

For just a minimum investment it is $3,000. For a Roth IRA it is $250. USAA also has another cool way to invest called automatic investing. You can buy into this fund with an automatic $50 a month deposit. This is a great way to invest into a volatile fund such as this because you buy as the market fluctuates.

Mineral particles in occupational exposure and ambient air particles may cause adverse health effects in humans. In this study the ability of different stone quarry particles to induce release of the proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-6 (IL-6) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) from human epithelial lung cells (A549) was investigated. Size distribution within the PM10 fractions was quite similar for all particle samples, whereas mineral content and metal composition differed. Particles, containing minerals such as quartz, amphibole, chlorite, and epidote, induced a marked increase in IL-6 and IL-8 release. Particles composed mainly of plagioclase were much less effective. The most potent particle samples exhibited a relatively high content of transition metals such as iron. Exposure to identical masses or surface areas resulted in the same order of potency among the different particle samples. Significant cytotoxicity was observed only at higher concentrations of particle exposure. Thus, mineral composition and/or metal contents of particles from different stone quarries were critical determinants for the marked differences in potency to induce cytokine responses in human epithelial lung cells.

A metal is a chemical element that is a good conductor of both electricity and heat and forms cations and ionic bonds with non-metals.

In chemistry, a metal (from Greek "μέταλλον" – métallon, "mine"[1]) is an element, compound, or alloy characterized by high electrical conductivity. In a metal, atoms readily lose electrons to form positive ions (cations). Those ions are surrounded by delocalized electrons, which are responsible for the conductivity. The solid thus produced is held by electrostatic interactions between the ions and the electron cloud, which are called metallic bonds.

A mineral is a naturally occurring solid chemical substance that is formed through geological processes and that has a characteristic chemical composition, a highly ordered atomic structure, and specific physical properties. By comparison, a rock is an aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids and does not have a specific chemical composition. Minerals range in composition from pure elements and simple salts to very complex silicates with thousands of known forms.[1] The study of minerals is called mineralogy.
