The biggest market that trades in nickel is London Metal Exchange (LME).Commonly found in iron meteorites, Nickel is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge.
Hard and ductile, resistant to corrosion, low conductivity, and many other characteristics make copper useful in the production of industrial and consumer products such as stainless steel, magnets, batteries, coinage, and electric guitar strings.

The World Map - Nickel Producers Map shows a list of the countries that produce the largest quantities of nickel.

As the data in the map shows, Russia is the largest nickel-producing nation in the world. In 2011, the country producing 280000 metric tonnes of nickel.
