    No, but gold is more dense than many minerals, with a specific gravity of 17.65. Natural minerals denser than it include chengdeite, an alloy of iridium and iron; iridosmine, an alloy of iridium and osmium; and osmium itself. Osmium is the densest naturally occurring element, with a density of 22.6 grams per cubic centimeter.
