Held me too long, whose iron hand has left
Its sharp stigmata on my brows and heart

Through the expectant night.

Three Possible Origins for the Gas Layer on GJ 1214b
In particular, the iron group elements exhibit a wealth of lines in the near UV that mostly shift light to the red, but also produce most of the UV flux around 300 nm ([171, 172]).
The expansion of the universe observed with supernovae
With this method, their data show evidence of a shift from a dominantly heavy composition (compatible with iron nuclei) to a light composition (protons), so that, if this interpretation is to be believed, the EHECR would mainly be protons.
Physics of Extremely High Energy Cosmic Rays
