Gold is a native metal resistant to most chemical compounds, it reacts only to white spirit and cyanide ion. One of the most precious metals in the world due to its rarity.
It has been known and appreciated by man since prehistoric times. It was most likely the first metal ever used by man (before copper) to make ornaments, jewellery and ritual objects.
Over time it became a symbol of purity, value and loyalty.
