E.g., Bismuth, Gold, Palladium, Silver, etc.? Can I have a a list of all non-man-made periodic elements that are considered to be precious?

Gold, silver, and platinum are the main three. Others such as palladium, osmium, etc.do occur naturally but are too rare to be considered on a practical level.
