(L. and F. fluere, flow or flux) In 1529, Georigius Agricola described the use of fluorspar as a flux, and
as early as 1670 Schwandhard found that glass was etched when exposed to fluorspar treated with acid.
Scheele and many later investigators, including Davy, Gay-Lussac, Lavoisier, and Thenard,
experimented with hydrofluoric acid, some experiments ending in tragedy.
The element was finally isolated in 1866 by Moissan after nearly 74 years of continuous effort.
