History

History
The element Beryllium was discovered by Louis Nicolas Vauquelin in year 1797 in France. Beryllium derived its name from from beryl, a mineral
The element Polonium was discovered by Pierre Curie in year 1898 in France. Polonium derived its name derived its name from from Named after the home country of Marie Curie(Poland), who is also the discoverer of Radium
