A brief, illustrated history of Tungsten, or wolfram, a rare metal first isolated by Swedish Pomeranian and German pharmaceutical chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele (1742-1786) and Spanish chemists and brothers José (1754-1796) and Fausto Elhuyar (1755-1833). The word tungsten is derived from the Swedish words tung, meaning heavy or ponderous, and sten, meaning stone. The volume includes a brief history of the use of Tungsten in World Wars I and II, its discovery in the United States, and its various contemporary applications, including radar and electronics.
