Iron

 

Iron is the second most abundant metal in the Earth's crust (after aluminum) and more iron is made than all the other metals put together. The ores, which are mainly the oxides, are reduced to iron with carbon (coke) at high temperatures in a blast furnace. Over 98% of this is converted directly to steel.
