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 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'
