History

History
The element Molybdenum was discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in year 1781 in Sweden. Molybdenum derived its name from from the Greek word molybdos meaning 'lead'
The element Holmium was discovered by Marc Delafontaine in year 1878 in Switzerland. Holmium derived its name derived its name from from Holmia, the New Latin name for Stockholm
