Iron was discovered by the ancient Egyptians in 3400 B.C. Iron has been around since the beginning of time. It was first discovered in meteorites that fell from the sky. A modern technology that is being used to isolate iron is mining. Mining is used to find iron, produce it, and isolate it.

Iron makes up more than 5% of the earths crust.

Iron is one of the oldest elements ever discovered.
