Lithium is a soft, alkali metal which, when not in contact with air, appears silvery. However Lithium is fairly reactive and on contact with air will tarnish in a matter of seconds. It is a solid at room temperature and reacts quickly with cold water. It burns with a red flame and is typically used in Lithium ion batteries.
