Niobium is known as a ductile transition metal. In its purest form, Niobium has a hardness rating on the Mohs scale that is similar to that of pure titanium. The ductility of Niobium is similar to that of iron. It was discovered by an English chemist named Charles Hatchett and reported, at the time, as a new element similar to tantalum. Discovered in 1801, it was originally named columbium in 1809.
