History

History
The element Ruthenium was discovered by Karl Ernst Claus in year 1844 in Russia. Ruthenium derived its name from from Ruthenia, the New Latin name for Russia
The element Tungsten was discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in year 1783 in Spain. Tungsten derived its name derived its name from from the Swedish tung sten, 'heavy stone' (W is wolfram, the old name of the tungsten mineral wolframite)
