**What is the heaviest stone?**

The heaviest rocks would be those that are made up of dense, metallic minerals. Two of the heaviest or densest rocks are peridotite or gabbro. They each have a density of between 3.0 to 3.4 grams per cubic centimeter. Interestingly, peridotite are the rocks that naturally occurring diamonds are found in.
