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 Silver was discovered by unknown in year 3000 BC in unknown place. Silver derived its name derived its name from from English word (argentum in Latin)
