HISTORY - Selenium was discovered in 1818 by Berzelius and was named by him after the moon, because it is found associated with Tellurium (Tellus, the earth). It is also found associated with Sulphur. All three belong to the same group of elements. Selenium is found either in its natural state or, more often, as a metallic selenide.

“When precipitated it appears as a red powder, which melts when heated and on cooling forms a brittle mass, nearly black, but transmitting red light when in thin plates. When heated in air it takes fire, burns with a blue flame, giving a gaseous Oxide of Selenium, which has a most penetrating and characteristic odor of putrid horse-radish. Sel. undergoes a remarkable change in electrical resistance under the action of light: hence the use of Selenium cells” (Cent. Dict.).
