    Should I name more than one element? okay, I do it: Are there Erbium, Terbium, Ytterbium and Yttrium? all of them are derived from the town Ytterby which is close to Stockholm.

    I must confess that I did it. Nevertheless its my turn again to think a new element out.

    Here are the clues: The atomic number of this element is greater than 50 and it can be solved in aqua regia.

    • This element has an atomic number >75
    • Professor Poliakoff thinks that this post-transition metal is the most desirable for a wedding ring
    • It is radioactive, but has a half life of over a billion times longer than the age of the universe

    You got it! You should totally check out periodicvideos on Youtube, they're videos posted by the University of Nottingham's chemistry department. All very good.
    I guess its your turn
