History of Titanium

The beginnings of titanium started when a black sand called menachanite, was discovered in 1791 in Cornwall by the Reverend William Gregor. This was then reported in the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall by who stated that this black sand was made up of the oxides of iron and an unknown metal.

In 1795 a German scientist Martin Heinrich Klaproth of Berlin came across a red ore known as Schörl from Hungary and realised it was an oxide of an unknown element which he named titanium. He was then alerted to Reverend William Gregor’s discovery; he then investigated the black sand called menachanite and concluded that it too contained titanium.

Pure titanium metal was not created until 1910 when M. A. Hunter, working for General Electric in the USA made pure titanium metal by heating titanium tetrachloride and sodium metal. Titanium thereafter was used in manufacturing for various uses. Commercial production of titanium was started around 1948

The first titanium jewellery was sold in the early 1990’s it became popular due to its properties of being hypoallergenic, robust and lightweight.
