In ancient Egypt gold was considered divine and a symbol of immortality because it never ages. Gold is one of the few metals that doesn’t oxidize or tarnish, making it the perfect symbol of immortality. After blowing the dust of the bracelet of an ancient pharaoh it will look exactly as it did more than 2000 thousand years ago.
It is tempting to say that gold comes from the heavens. Unlike other metals that were formed on Earth, gold was formed in the core of stars and has been part of the components that formed our planet since the dawn of time. Other gold came to us with comets and asteroids that hit the planet more than 3.5 billion years ago.
