The Shy Element.....

a: Boron ~
b: a shy kid

What: "Boron is like the shy kid who is quietly good at most subjects in school. Unlike most of the other elements Boron is not born in stars but was first created in the Big Bang and continues to be made by cosmic rays in deep space or the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere. Despite its relatively low abundance and low profile boron has found its way in to many aspects of our everyday life and for many of us we don't even notice."
