Scandium - Wikipedia

Scandium is a chemical element with the symbol Sc and atomic number 21. A silvery-white metallic d-block element, it has historically been classified as a rare-earth element, together with yttrium and the lanthanides.It was discovered in 1879 by spectral analysis of the minerals euxenite and gadolinite from Scandinavia.. Scandium is present in most of the deposits of rare-earth and uranium ...
