    Gold Chain

    Gold Chain

    Gold is a precious metal of a bright yellow color, the most ductile and malleable of all the metals. It may be beaten into leaves so exceeding thin that one grain in weight will cover 56 square inches, and it will take 280,000 such leaves to make an inch in thickness. A single grain may be drawn into a wire 500 feet long, and an ounce of gold can be made to cover a tiny silver wire more than 1300 miles in length. It may also be melted and re-melted with scarcely any diminution in quantity. It does not tarnish with exposure to air and it is one of the heaviest metals, being about nineteen and one-third times heavier than water.
