History

History
The element Zirconium was discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth in year 1789 in Germany. Zirconium derived its name from from Persian Zargun, 'gold-colored'; German Zirkoon, 'jargoon'
The element Berkelium was discovered by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in year 1949 in United States. Berkelium derived its name derived its name from from Berkeley, California, where the element was first synthesized, by analogy with terbium
