From the structures rising across the cityscapes to the automobiles cruising down the highway, America has been sculpted by steel. "The noun steel originates from the Proto-Germanic adjective stakhlijan (made of steel), which is related to stakhla (standing firm)." Steel is an alloy composed of iron and carbon and is often used in construction because of its high tensile strength. Beyond construction, steel is used in a variety of ways from stainless steel kitchen appliances, automobiles, and even surgical equipment.
Steel is by no means a modern technology. It traces all the way back to 1400 BC with several references throughout early literature across Roman, Egyptian, Chinese, and Arab culture.
The color black is often associated with this widely used alloy. Without hue and absent of light this color is synonymous with strength, resiliency, durability, and even profitability. When a company has moved from "the red" to "the black" it has become profitable. And beyond the accounting books, the steel industry is often considered an indicator of economic progress, because of the vital role played by steel in infrastructural and overall economic development.
