    Well was looking for alumium or aluminium, but the second part of your answer lets you off.

    If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men.

    I have to confess since Na is element 11 and Mg is element 12 i simply looked at element 13 and the answer was obvious.

    Since we are on a Humphry Davy kick there are two non-element things I associate him with.

    The first us the Davy Safety Lamp, for to make it safer for miners working in explosive atmospheres, which paradoxically lead to an increase in mining accidents.

    What was the other? Still used commonly today.

    I had no idea so I looked it up. Was surprised.
    I do not fear death, in view of the fact that I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.

    No. You're thinking of the French Horn.

    Hint, it isn't an object like a lamp or a horn.

    Hint, he was primarily a chemist.

    Hint, you'll laugh when you find out.
