Well... there certainly are, but they occur in very special configurations. We know the most abundant chemicals in the universe, and we can organize
them on the period table. We have also predicted elements that do exist, decades before discovering that they do. We still do have predicted elements
that must exist in our periodic table, but we haven't found them yet - in fact, this number is around 50! This is the same pattern we see with
particles that exist (even for fractions of fractions of nanoseconds). We can see them mathematically, just don't have the high energies or
technology required to produce them.
Why would they be produced in this section of the universe?
The thing is, it appears that we've discovered all the elements that are created from the reactions within stars. Many of the other elements are very
short-lived and unstable - but they do exist in a sense. This is why we collide particles together in particle accelerators! To find more and more
unknown elements that aren't even created in the fusion reactions and supernova of stars.
You may be interested in Ice I, Ice II, Ice III... Ice IV. These are all very special forms of ice that occur in varying pressures and
Not sure if you JUST want to know about metal, but why would you when all the other crazy possibilities are out there?
