Metals form extended "moleucules", a vast network of atoms, (like diamond, for instance) in which each metal atom is bonded to one or more adjacent metal atoms. From that standpoint, metals are NOT monatomic. So, basically they form network of atoms.
Its not just octet rule which is responsible for the stability.
