A metalloid is a chemical element that exhibits the properties of both metals and nonmetals. Since they are specific enough to be either of these classifications, they are called metalloids. Some examples include boron, silicon, and germanium.

What are the two most metallic common elements in the earths crust?
The 8 most common elements in Earth's crust (by mass): 46.6% Oxygen (O) 27.7% Silicon (Si) 8.1% Aluminum (Al) 5.0% Iron (Fe) 3.6% Calcium (Ca) 2.8% Sodium (Na) 2.6% Potassium (K) 2.1% Magnesium (Mg) Therefore, the most common metallic elements in the Earth's crust would be Silicon and aluminum. (Note that aluminum is a metal, but silicon is considered to be a metaliod -- not to be confused with Silicone which is a synthetic polymer.) ...
