Statistics About The Most Dense Element

The most dense naturally occurring element is osmium, with a density of 22.59 g/cm³.

Statistic 1

"The densest element on the periodic table is Osmium (Os) with a density of 22.59 g/cm3."

Sources Icon

Statistic 2

"Osmium is almost twice as dense as lead."

Sources Icon

Statistic 3

"Osmium's 76th atomic number makes it one of the heaviest elements."

Sources Icon

Statistic 4

"Osmium has a melting point of 3,033 degrees Celsius."

Sources Icon

Statistic 5

"Osmium is principally obtained as a by-product from nickel and copper mining."

Sources Icon

Statistic 6

"The annual production of osmium is only around 75 kg."

Sources Icon

Statistic 7

"More than 60% of produced osmium is used in hardening devices like instrument pivots."

Sources Icon

Statistic 8

"Osmium is rarely used in its pure form due to its extreme toxicity."

Sources Icon

Statistic 9

"Osmium does not react with air at room temperature but is attacked by air at higher temperatures to give osmium tetroxide, a poisonous compound."

Sources Icon

Statistic 10

"About 8000 tonnes of osmium exist in the Earth's crust, however, it is one of the least available elements."

Sources Icon

Statistic 11

"The second densest metal, Iridium, has a density of 22.56 g/cm3."

Sources Icon

Statistic 12

"Natural Iridium often contains distinct amounts of Osmium."

Sources Icon

Statistic 13

"Like osmium, iridium is also produced largely as a by-product of nickel and platinum mining."

Sources Icon

Statistic 14

"About 10% of iridium production goes to medical applications, such as cancer treatment."

Sources Icon

Statistic 15

"Iridium is completely immune to the attacks of acid and remains solid up to temperatures as high as 2000 degrees Celsius."

Sources Icon

Statistic 16

"Iridium has a 192th atomic number which makes it a very heavy element, close to osmium."

Sources Icon

Statistic 17

"Gold, despite its perceived heaviness, is the 6th densest element, with a density of 19.32 g/cm3."

Sources Icon

Statistic 18

"Platinum, often mistaken as the densest metal, actually ranks 3rd with a density of 21.45 g/cm3."

Sources Icon

Statistic 19

"Rhenium, the fourth densest element, has a density of 21.02 g/cm3."

Sources Icon

Statistic 20

"Neptunium, a radioactive element, is the 5th most dense figure at 20.45 g/cm3."
