The top 10 heaviest elements in the entire known universe

This list of decimal elements is “heaviest” by the density of each cubic centimeter.

However, keep in mind that density is not mass. it merely describes how tightly the mass is put together.

now we understand Let’s take a look at the heaviest elements in the entire known universe… (Main picture is bismuth crystals not listed.)


10 – Tantalum (density per cubic centimeter: 16.67 g)

Tantalum’s atomic number is seventy-three.


9 – Uranium (density per cubic centimeter: 19.05g)

Discovered in 1789 by German chemist Martin H.

8 – Tungsten (density per cubic cm: 19.26 g)

Tungsten exists in four different minerals and is the heaviest of all biological elements.


7 – Gold (density per cubic cm: 19.29g)

They say money doesn’t grow on trees. But gold grows!

Few traces of gold were found in the leaves of the eucalyptus tree.

6 – Plutonium (density per cubic centimeter: 20.26 g)

elemental chameleon

5 – Neptunium (density per cubic cm: 20.47 g)

Named after the planet Neptune. It was discovered by Professor Edwin McMillan in 1940.

It is also the first synthetic transuranium element of the actinide series to be discovered.

4 – Rhenium (density per cubic cm: 21.01 g)

Rhenium comes from the Latin ‘Rhenus’ meaning ‘Rhine’ and was discovered by Walter Noddack in Germany in 1925.


3 – Platinum (density per cubic cm: 21.45 g)

One of the precious metals on this list. (other than gold) and used for everything

Not much, of course (try it in gold).

2 – Iridium (density per cubic cm: 22.56g)

Discovered in London in 1803 by Smithson Tennant, he found it in the residue left when raw platinum was melted!

Yes, discovered purely by accident.


1 – Osmium (density per cubic cm: 22.59 g)

It’s not heavier than osmium. (per cubic centimeter) at all

The strange name comes from the Greek word osme, which means smell!
