Platinum is a precious metal whose use dates back to at least ancient Egypt. However, these early uses of platinum were likely accidental, as they appeared simply as traces in gold jewelry. During the Age of Discovery, Spanish conquistadors discovered platinum but dismissed it as an inferior metal. This was mainly because it was a challenge to melt and shape. In 1751, platinums status was elevated considerably when it was declared a precious metal by a Swedish scientist named Theophil Scheffer.
