Platinum: Is one of the rarest elements in the earth's
crust. It occurs naturally, though there is little
evidence of its use by ancient people. However, the
first European reference to platinum appears in 1557
in the writings of the Italian, Julius Caesar Scaliger,
as a description of an unknown Noble Metal found,
"which no fire nor any Spanish artifice has yet been
able to liquefy."
