Gold in nature and its characteristics

From the beginning of time until today gold is considered the most important metal, the most precious… the most beautiful. Most of the gold produced today is used for the manufacture of jewelry, such as necklaces, rings and bracelets.

Even taking a step back in time gold has always been appreciated and used for the creation of important objects associated with power, wealth and happiness.

Gold has several characteristics:

  • has superior electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance;
  • it is an extremely heavy metal;
  • it is very rare;
  • it is not damaged by heat, air or moisture, it is also resistant to blackening.

Gold is distributed widely throughout the earth’s crust, with an average concentration of 0.03 grams per ton. Deposits of gold ores are found in metamorphic rocks and igneous rocks, from which alluvial gold deposits are formed.
Gold is also present in seawater in a concentration close to 1.3 milligrams per ton of water. The total amount of gold present in the oceans is therefore about 20 million tons, but the very low concentration makes this type of extraction uneconomical for the moment.

In addition, here is a little curiosity about gold: the amount extracted from the beginning of the history of humanity to today is estimated at about 180 thousand tons and every year an additional 3 thousand are added. A truly considerable amount!
