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 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'
