No, your current construction is incorrect.
It should be:
I saw a gray and a black elephant.
I saw a gray elephant and a black elephant.
The extra indefinite article "a" before "black" shows that you are talking about two individual things. Without the "a" before "black", it would be as though you are talking about seeing an elephant that is both gray and black.
