Scandium is a chemical element with the symbol Sc and atomic number 21. Here are some interesting facts:

  • It is 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.
  • It is present in most of the deposits of rare-earth and uranium compounds, but it is extracted from these ores in only a few mines worldwide. 
  • It is difficult to isolate in its pure form. 
  • It wasn't until 1960 that the first pound of scandium was produced. 
  • In Earth's crust, scandium is not rare (varies from 18 to 25 ppm), but it is distributed sparsely and occurs in trace amounts in many minerals.
  • It is more abundant in the stars where it is around the twenty-sixth most abundant element.
