  Chemical symbol Summary
For example, in Etienne Geoffroy's (1672-1731) table of chemical affinities, published in 1718, the astrological symbol for Mars is used to indicate iron (the symbol for the sun, a circle with a dot in the center, is used for gold).
Because chemical symbols are often derived from the Latin or Greek name of the element, they may not bear much similarity to the common English name, e.g., Na for sodium (Latin natrium) and Au for gold (Latin aurum).
Chemical symbols may also be changed to show if one particular isotope of an atom that is specified, as well as to show other attributes such as ionization and oxidation state of a chemical compound.

 Nomenclature rare earth minerals
More than one chemical symbol may be appended only if the elements occupy different crystal-structure sites, which must be defined.
When two or more chemical symbols within parentheses are suffixed, the second chemical symbol may mean either (a) a chemical variety or (b) a mineral species; i.e., the second chemical symbol represents a rare-earth element in a different crystal-structure site compared to the first chemical symbol.
Therefore, the CNMMN has recently approved a modification to the original nomenclature system (Levinson, 1966) such that a chemical adjectival modifier should be used instead of two or more chemical symbols within parentheses if two or more elements substitute for each other within a single set of crystal-structure sites.
