The Feng Shui Element Metal embodies what is on your mind. It is our intellect and the mental aspect in our life. Metaphors such as “mind like a steel trap” and “razor sharp mind” convey this definition.
Characteristics of Metal
The material itself is can be noted as our human signature, as in we take it from the earth and manipulate it into various forms. Metal can be dramatic and strong, think sculpture, jewellery and buildings. And can be the epitome of strength and endurance, such as granite and marble.
White and pastel colors; circles, arches and ovals are shapes represent the element metal. Actual metal objects or sculptures, rocks, gemstones, stones, and art featuring those add the metal element into your environment.
It can be defined as our ability to focus, clear communication and deep intellectual clarity.

- an inability to compromise
- resistant to change course (even when it makes sense)
