Osmium is a chemical element that has a chemical symbol Os. The atomic number of Osmium is 76. It is a brittle, bluish-white, hard, transition metal of the platinum group which is found as a trace element in alloys, in platinum ores.
It is the densest naturally occurring element, with an experimentally measured density of 22.59 g/cm3. Manufacturers use its alloys with iridium, platinum, and other platinum-group metals to make fountain electrical contacts, pen nib tipping, and in other applications which requires extreme durability and hardness. The element’s abundance in the Earth’s crust is the rarest.
