History

History
The element Samarium was discovered by Lecoq de Boisbaudran in year 1879 in France. Samarium derived its name from from Samarskite, the name of the mineral from which it was first isolated
The element Erbium was discovered by Carl Gustaf Mosander in year 1842 in Sweden. Erbium derived its name derived its name from from Ytterby, Sweden
