Modern world gold reserves are estimated at about 32,000 tons. If a cube is smelted from all this metal, its side will be only 12 meters.

The reason why gold is so widely used in the jewelry, electronics and medical industries lies in its properties. This precious metal is almost impossible to destroy: it does not oxidize, does not mold, does not rust, and can be worked over an unlimited number of times. This means that your gold ring could be an adornment of someone who lived in another century.

The largest gold nugget in the world, measuring 25×63 cm and weighing about 70 kg, was found in Australia in 1872. He was called “The Long-Awaited Wanderer”.
