Luster, or lustre, is a property of more than minerals. Lots of surfaces exhibit luster.

It has to do with with the optical properties of the element, mineral, etc. etc. that is reflecting the light.

Are you a good hacker or a bad (terrorist) hacker?

If you go to this website, you will get some understanding of why different metals are of different colors:
