History

History
The element Aluminium was discovered by in year 1825 in Denmark. Aluminium derived its name from from alumina, a compound (originally aluminum)
The element Silicon was discovered by Jöns Jacob Berzelius in year 1824 in Sweden. Silicon derived its name derived its name from from the Latin silex, 'flint' (originally silicium)
