    Gold weighs slightly more than tungsten. The atomic weight of gold is 196.96 while tungsten is 183.86. Gold also has a gravity of 19.32, and tungsten is 19.25. Although it’s a small difference, measuring devices could determine one from the other.

    Tungsten and gold have the same weight to three decimal places.  The two metals sharing the same weight has led to gold bars being counterfeited by plating bars of tungsten.  A shipment to China of approximately 5,600 gold bars was discovered to be fake after the London Bullion Market tested the bars.
