 Sha·drach n. Metal. A mass of iron on which the operation of smelting has failed of its intended effect; -- so called from Shadrach, one of the three Hebrews who came forth unharmed from the fiery furnace of Nebuchadnezzar. (See --Dan. iii. 26, 27.)
 

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Shadrach
    Aku's command, the Chaldean name given to Hananiah, one of the
    Hebrew youths whom Nebuchadnezzar carried captive to Babylon
    (Dan. 1:6, 7; 3:12-30). He and his two companions refused to bow
    down before the image which Nebuchadnezzar had set up on the
    plains of Dura. Their conduct filled the king with the greatest
    fury, and he commanded them to be cast into the burning fiery
    furnace. Here, amid the fiery flames, they were miraculously
    preserved from harm. Over them the fire had no power, "neither
    was a hair of their head singed, neither had the smell of fire
    passed on them." Thus Nebuchadnezzar learned the greatness of
    the God of Israel. (See ABEDNEGO.)
