History

History
The element Carbon was discovered by Ancient Egypt in year N/A in unknown place. Carbon derived its name from the Latin word carbo, meaning 'coal'
The element Tungsten was discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in year 1783 in Spain. Tungsten derived its name derived its name from from the Swedish tung sten, 'heavy stone' (W is wolfram, the old name of the tungsten mineral wolframite)
