Entity of the month
One of the rarer elements in the Earth's crust (~0.01 ppm), platinum is a silvery-white transition metal with atomic number 78 and is located in group 10 of the periodic table (under palladium and sandwiched between iridium and gold). One of the least reactive of the metal elements, it is often found in its elemental form. Its density (21.4 g/cm3) is greater than that of gold (19.3 g/cm3). It was prized by the Mayans for jewellery, but early European explorers regarded it with disdain – it was often present as an impurity when they mined gold.
