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 Nickel was discovered by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in year 1751 in Sweden. Nickel derived its name derived its name from from Swedish kopparnickel, containing the German word Nickel, 'goblin'
