Boron is a chemical element wi seembol B an atomic nummer 5. Acause boron is produced entirely bi cosmic ray spallation an nae bi stellar nucleosynthesis,[8] it is a law-abundance element in baith the solar seestem an the Yird's crust. Boron is concentratit on Yird bi the watter-solubility o its mair common naiturally occurrin compoonds, the borate minerals. These are mined industrially as evaporites, such as borax an kernite.
