Were was Beryllium found and who found it.

When was your element discovered (or first produced if it is manmade)?

Discovered in France, 1797 by that stud muffin of a scientist. He was known well for his works and studies at that time.

Paris, France.

Louis Nicolas Vauquelin. A legend of a scientist. First discovered the element.

Found with other types of minerals. Even emeralds. Is at times hard to find. Also most of its uses came in later time much after being found. That was around 1828.

Applications and use of beryllium

Most off-ten used in rockets after being melted down.


There are plenty of different isotopes for beryllium

. Compounds

Beryllium is used in high grade rockets when refined. And within some other metal type structures.


1. Name and symbol, BE and name is Beryllium.

2. Other weird/unique/interesting information

When melted down and refined it is very light weight. It is also expensive.

Also since it is found in emeralds that pushes the price up. Emeralds are worth more then gold on depending quality.
