History

History
The element Nickel was discovered by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in year 1751 in Sweden. Nickel derived its name from from Swedish kopparnickel, containing the German word Nickel, 'goblin'
The element Praseodymium was discovered by Carl Auer von Welsbach in year 1885 in Austria. Praseodymium derived its name derived its name from from the Greek praseios didymos meaning 'green twin'
