The nature of gold
Gold is an elemental metal that is extraordinarily malleable. In fact, gold is the most malleable metal that can be found on Earth. Some people think of early gold miners biting their “treasure” to determine if it’s real or not. This is because gold will be slightly soft when pressure is applied, instead of remaining firm as rocks do. In addition, the malleable characteristic of gold enables it to be formed into many different shapes and sizes, such as gold leaf. Interestingly, the term ‘malleable’ has Latin roots as ‘malleus’ which translates to ‘a hammer’.
Pure gold also has the ability to bond with other metals. Such metals include copper, silver, palladium, and nickel. Next, rose gold is comprised of about 25% copper and 75% gold. Finally, white gold consists of around 25% white metals, which include the remaining three listed above. Given this fact, one can still wear or use gold even if one dislikes the natural color of gold.
