Introduction: What is Lutetium? Lutetium is a silvery-white rare-earth metal. It is the last element in the lanthanide series. Lutetium was independently found by three scientists (Georges Urbain, Baron Carl Auer von Welsbach, and Charles James) as an impurity in the mineral ytterbia, which was previously thought to consist only of ytterbium. It has an...
