History

HistoryThe element Tungsten was discovered by W. Scheele in year 1781 in Spain. Tungsten derived its name from the Swedish tung sten, 'heavy stone' (W is wolfram, the old name of the tungsten mineral wolframite).The element Krypton was discovered by W. Ramsay and W. Travers in year 1898 in United Kingdom. Krypton derived its name from the Greek kryptos, meaning 'hidden'.
