What is lead and where can it be found?

Lead is a naturally occurring chemical element that is found in small amounts throughout the earth’s crust. It is a soft and highly malleable metal that (while found in small amounts) is abundant throughout the earth and simple to extract – making it an ideal choice to be used in consumer products in the past such as paint, ceramics, pipes, solders, gasoline, batteries, cosmetics, and more.
