Elementium is an extremely rare metal, found only in some of the most remote regions of Azeroth. It is believed by archaeologists to have been formed during the prehistoric reign of the Old Gods, in places where there were high concentrations of elemental creatures. In fact, elementium isn’t native to Azeroth, and is found only near high concentrations of elemental creatures because they bring it from the Elemental Plane where it is actually quite common. The unique properties of elementium allow it to absorb and channel elemental forces. Skilled smiths temper elementium in blistering forges, adding to the quality of the item.[citation needed]

Items in Cataclysm

Blizzard in their infinite wisdom decided to further confuse players by changing the old "elementium" into enchanted elementium and introduced a new type of Elementium for Cataclysm. In the expansion, this is a mid to level cap mined metal (typically mined in zones intended for level 82-85), with obsidium being the introductory metal and pyrite at the top.

The basic [Elementium Bar] can be alloyed into the more rare [Hardened Elementium Bar].

Items in World of Warcraft (classic)

There are various obtainable items associated with elementium in the first release, only one of which ([Enchanted Elementium Bar]) is player-crafted. The rest are either created by NPC's from [Elementium Ingots] you supply, or appear (from the name and/or tooltip) to be created at least partly with elementium. Notice that whenever something is made with enchanted elementium, it is always quite extraordinary and/or expensive.
