Nowadays, the Wolframio (tungsten) is a key material when understanding modern societies. The US holds one of the biggest reserves in the world.
The name "wolframite" is derived from German "wolf rahm" ("wolf soot" or "wolf cream"), the name given to tungsten by Johan Gottschalk Wallerius in 1747. This, in turn, derives from "Lupi spuma", the name Georg Agricola used for the element in 1546, which translates into English as "wolf's froth" or "cream" in reference to the superstitions of medieval Saxon miners who believed that the devil appeared in wolf form and inhabited the depths of the mines eroding cassiterite with slavering jaws.
