Gold is a rare metallic element with a melting point of 1064 degrees centigrade and a boiling point of 2808 degrees centigrade. Its chemical symbol, Au, is short for the Latin word for gold, ‘Arum’, which literally means ‘Glowing Dawn’
The malleability of Gold means that a single gram of gold,roughly the size of a grain of rice, can be flattened into a sheet that covers 0.92 square meters. It`s also the most ductile of all metals, which means it can be drawn out into the finest, longest wire of any metallic element. Gold also conducts heat and electricity, and lasts longer than all conducting materials.It`s highly reflective, incredibly dense and able to resist rust, corrosion and oxidation.
The shine, color and work ability of this gold makes it simply irresistible. Today, advancements in science have proved just how valuable gold really is and reinforced society`s natural passion for this material. Beyond its obvious beauty and luster, the very properties of gold give it value that exceeds that of virtually all other metals.
