    Carbon of course. It has an entire field of study dedicated to compounds formed from it, organic chemistry. Carbon forms by far the most diverse, numerous, important and interesting molecules there are.

    Iron here too. Specifically Iron-56.

    Only reason why is because it has the most binding energy per nucleon and so is the last element created in nuclear fusion in stars. Gives it some sense of finality and completeness.
