Lutetium is a silvery-white rare-earth metal which is relatively stable in air. It happens to be the most expensive rare-earth metal. Lutetium is found with almost all rare-earth metals, but is very difficult to separate from other elements. It is the least abundant of all natural elements. This element is used in metal alloys, and as a catalyst in various processes. Lutetium has 35 isotopes. There are two natural isotopes, 1 of which is stable one. The most stable isotope is Lu-174 with a half-life of 3.3 years. The separation of lutetium from ytterbium was described by Georges Urbain in 1907. It was discovered at approximately the same time by Carl Auer von Welsbach. The name Lutetium comes from the Greek word lutetia which means Paris.
