Re: Greek metal

Salvete, Just a simple question: what is the ancient Greek word for "metal"? A word that could mean "gravity" or "ice" is also welcome. I forgot a lot, as you can see :). I need to know these words to form compounds with -kinesis for the novel I'm writing. Optime valete, Draco Salve Draco, ...
