Erythrite, known as Cobalt bloom, is seen on a rock at a First Cobalt Corp. facility outside of Cobalt, Ontario, Canada, on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017. Global demand for cobalt, a component in batteries used to power electric cars for automakers from Tesla Inc. to Volkswagen AG, is changing the importance of the metal. Cobalt, both the town and the metal, are attracting renewed attention as a buffer to rising political risks in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Photographer: Cole Burston/Bloomberg
