History

History
The element Chromium was discovered by Louis Nicolas Vauquelin in year 1797 in France. Chromium derived its name from from the Greek word chroma, meaning 'color'
The element Gadolinium was discovered by Jean Charles Galissard de Marignac in year 1880 in Switzerland. Gadolinium derived its name derived its name from from Johan Gadolin, chemist, physicist and mineralogist
