When was Boron Discovered?

Boron in its elemental state is not found in nature. You will find boron in a mineral called rasorite which is found in the Mojave Desert in California. Boron can also be found in borax deposits, tourmaline, and kernite in Turkey. Boron was discovered in 1808 by Sir Humphrey Davy and Joseph-Louis Gay-Lussac and L J Thernard.
