Malleability is a physical property of matter, usually metals. This property usually applies to the family groups 1 to 12 on the Modern Periodic Table of Elements. It is the ability of a solid to bend or be hammered into other shapes without breaking. The most malleable metal is gold. It is also the most ductile metal. These properties make it easy to stretch and shape gold into thin sheets and other artistic shapes and designs.
