Dysprosium is a chemical element with the symbol Dy and atomic number 66.

It is a lanthanide rare earth element with a metallic silvery luster.

Dysprosium is a soft, shiny metal. Dysprosium has one of the highest magnetic elements, second only to holmium. Dysprosium is often added to rare earth permanent magnets to help them operate more efficiently at higher temperatures. Dysprosium is used in lasers and commercial lighting, and it is also used to make hard drives and other electronics that require specific magnetism. Dysprosium is also used in nuclear reactors and modern fuel-efficient vehicles.
