Gold has been prized by human beings for thousands of years, and has been used as currency as well as for jewellery and other forms of ornamentation. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs from approximately 2600 years BC describe gold, as even this early on it was seen as an indication of great wealth. Both the Old and New Testament of the Bible make mention of gold, which also serves to demonstrate the metal’s importance to humanity in the ancient world. The early explorers who discovered the Americas were encouraged to continue their excursions to the New World in part due to the fact that the native peoples used a lot of gold in both jewellery and ornamentation. Those who went on to inhabit Canada, the USA and South America continued to search for gold, and were very often successful. Some of the most famous gold rushes occurred in places like Klondike, Colorado and the Black Hills, but other countries also experienced them – for example Australia and South Africa. Today, gold is still widely used to make jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings. Some are interested to learn that it is also used for its medicinal qualities on occasion – it can prove to be quite a good anti-inflammatory, though is maybe best known for its use in dentistry. Gold leaf is also used in certain food products, including some alcoholic beverages, for decorative purposes.
