Silicon, a hard and brittle crystalline solid with a blue-grey metallic luster. Widely distributed in dusts, sands, planetoids, and planets as various forms of silicon dioxide (silica) or silicates. This raw material is widely used within the tech industry for its highly conductive qualities as well as its ability to protect hardware from impact and natural elements. Both robust and soft – silicon embodies and unites: silicon valleys, silicon mountains, silicon disasters and silicon dreams.
