Platinum is extremely scarce even among precious metals, occurring as only 0.003 parts per billion in the Earth’s crust.
In 2005, South Africa was the top producer of platinum with an almost 80% share, followed by Russia and Canada. South African mine shortages in 2008 drove the price to over $2,300 an ounce.
