History

History
The element Platinum was discovered by Antonio de Ulloa in year 1735 in Peru. Platinum derived its name from from the Spanish platina, meaning 'little silver'
The element Gold was discovered by Middle East in year 2500 BC in unknown place. Gold derived its name derived its name from from English word (aurum in Latin)
