History

History
The element Lithium was discovered by Johan August Arfwedson in year 1817 in Sweden. Lithium derived its name from the Greek word lithos, meaning 'stone'
The element Ruthenium was discovered by Karl Ernst Claus in year 1844 in Russia. Ruthenium derived its name derived its name from from Ruthenia, the New Latin name for Russia
