Alas, my dear sheepy, as you can see, the lightest thing is now my wallet!So sadly I shall be unable to donate a piece of fine jewellery for you to don at your next appearance on 'One Man & his Dog'.This also means, I suppose, that I will never know what it is to have an ovine bitch. But I think I can live with that.
If you put all the world's known gold in one place it still wouldn't be a very heavy solid. Roughly half as heavy as the great pyramid (according to some vague numbers I found on the web).On the other hand gold is pretty dense.
Solids of the heavier elements are heavier. D'oh Something to do with Avogadro's number
