Platinum

As one of the Earth's most rare and precious metals, Platinum is used in many applications across the world. It is considered a noble metal because of its ability to resist tarnishing or corroding, which makes it ideal for certain devices. One of the largest consumers of platinum is the automobile industry, which relies heavily on it for catalytic converters used to purify emissions. Platinum is also popular in jewelry and often times gets thrown away or mistaken as being plated because of the common jewelry marking "Plat". Platinum is also common in bullion form, either bars or rounds, and is kept as an investment alternative or safe haven for those looking to diversify their portfolio.

Here at Northeast Precious Metals we have the knowledge and expertise to properly identify and recycle platinum in all forms. We also work with a network of bullion dealers and investment houses in order to offer platinum for customers looking to add this precious metals to their collection.
