Iridium is a member of the platinum metal group first discovered by Smithson Tennant in 1803 who named it after the Greek goddess, Iris, the personification of a rainbow,
because of the striking and diverse colors of its various salts. Iridium is one of the rarest elements in the earth’s crust, with annual production and consumption of
only three metric tons.
Iridium is used in a number of organic compounds as industrial catalysts and in research. It is employed in high corrosion resistance and high temperature required situations,
such as spark plugs, electrodes, and crucibles for re–crystalization of semi–conductors.
