History

History
The element Osmium was discovered by Smithson Tennant in year 1803 in United Kingdom. Osmium derived its name from from the Greek osmè, meaning 'smell'
The element Mercury was discovered by unknown in year 1500 BC in unknown place. Mercury derived its name derived its name from from the New Latin name mercurius, named after the Roman god (Hg from former name hydrargyrum, from Greek hydr-, 'water', and argyros, 'silver')
