  2. Gold is extremely ductile. A single ounce of gold (about 28 grams) can be stretched into a gold thread 5 miles (8 kilometers) long. Gold threads can even be used in embroidery.
  3. Gold is the most malleable element. A single ounce of gold can be beaten into a 300-square-foot sheet. A sheet of gold can be made thin enough to be transparent.
  4. Although gold is a heavy, dense metal, it is generally considered nontoxic.  In fact gold flakes are often used to elaborately decorate foods and drinks and can be consumed harmlessly.
  5. Gold is the only metal that is yellow.  Other metals may develop a yellowish color, but only after they have oxidized or reacted with other chemicals.
  6. Nearly all the gold on Earth came from meteorites that bombarded the planet over 200 million years after it formed.
