If it is Chromium, then the 14th metal could be Nickel Chromate. (Though if this is true the metal colors on the wheel are reversed. Chromium is silvery, where Nickel Chromate is rust colored.)

A man called Hope.

Hmmm. I also think #13 is Chromium, but it's really hard to tell. In fact, #13's color does look like how I envisioned what was previously the 15th metal (the one Elend ate), sort of dark like that. All I know for certain is that it starts out with a "C".

I find it immensely curious that the 4th group of metals is explicitly called Enhancement, and that Duralumin and Aluminum are internal metals. Technically, giving someone Allomancy is an enhancement, so that could be likely.

I sort of doubt now that #14 is the thing in the Well, but it is silverish. That counts for something.

Sigh, I don't think I can make much more theories about the 13th/14th metal (curse that numbering change! lol). All I must say is that whenever Brandon will be selling those posters, I so want one.

Oh SNAP, I'm an Allomancer.

Curse you guys for resurrecting a topic that I'd learned to ignore! Anyway, I just started a new thread about this since I didn't see this.

Chromium is a likely possibility. Anyway....

This does kind of kill the 14th metal being the one in the well.
