It's so hard to pick a favourite, but one of the ones that always stands out for me is Germanium. When Mendeleev first created the periodic table, there were a few gaps. He predicted that there should be elements in those positions, even though it hadn't been discovered yet. Of these four, Germanium is the one that I remember learning about in this context in school. It was discovered a few decades after Mendeleev predicted it, and really showed how well the table worked. It wasn't just a random list - it could predict the properties of undiscovered elements! This was one of the stories that inspired me to study chemistry for my undergrad degree.
