What metal is it?

Physical description:
- light weight
- color is very similar to lead
- almost as soft as lead and brittle
- doesn't oxidize as seen on pics - when broken its very shiny and then looses a bit down (protective oxide layer?)

Oh I have just a handful - I was hiking in the Himalaya and at around 5200m or so on a glacier moraine I run into it. I just took few samples and went for the summit.

I use to do a lot of hiking in the Himalaya back in the early 70's. Never made it to the summit. Was fun trying.
