Background of the Lutetium Element

Lutetium got its name from the city of Paris, Lutetia. Discovered in 1907 by French scientist Georges Urbain, Austrian mineralogist Baron Carl Auer von Welsbach and American chemist Charles James. Urbain chose the name lutecium for the new element, but in 1949 the spelling was changed to lutetium.
