DescriptionVanadium was first discovered in 1830 by a Swedish chemist, Sefstroem, in a specimen of iron from the ores at Taberg, Sweden. The pure metal is light, grayish-white in color, having a silver white lustre. It is not affected by air or water at ordinary temperatures; does not volatilize at a strong red heat; is fusible with difficulty, but burns brilliantly when heated in air or oxygen or thrown in powder fonn into a flame. 8 p.
