Science question: What's the difference between an element and a chemical element?

In a modern scientific context, there basically isn't one. In other contexts, it might be necessary to specify that you don't mean the classical elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire). In this case, Gold is both a literal element on the periodic table and one of the classical elements in Chinese folklore.
