Default Re: Titanium on Pern

I'm reading Skies of Pern right now, in between everything else! I was excited to read, on page 67, that Toric talks About aluminium, or what I believe is aluminium. He is considering his Mastersmith brother, Hamian, and how he (Toric) feels that Hamian shouldn't be working on "the new Plastics Hall" and instead should be working on the new metal lode that produced the "lightweight and malleable ore". He says it's called "box- box-something" (McCaffrey, 2001, pg. 67) Bauxite??

I just wanted to share that!
