Found inWikipedia, Oct. 12, 2012 (Vanadium is a chemical element with the symbol V and atomic number 23. It is a hard, silvery gray, ductile and malleable transition metal. Andrés Manuel del Río discovered compounds of vanadium in 1801 by analyzing a new lead-bearing mineral he called "brown lead," and presumed its qualities were due to the presence of a new element, which he named erythronium)
Chemicool website, Oct. 12, 2012 (Vanadium was discovered in 1801 by the Spanish scientist Andres Manuel del Rio.
