    Zalium was developed and named by Ronald Winston, the son of Harry Winston. The metal is classified as a type of zirconium alloy, combining zirconium (Zr) and allium lily. Zironcium is non-reactive and hypo-allergenic, and can withstand superheated corrosive gases in the high-stress interior of a rocket motor. It is often used as a construction material for jets and rocket engines.
