Gold is an attractive and highly valued metal, and has been know to exist for at least 5500 years. Although Gold is sometimes found free in nature, it's usually found in conjunction with Silver, Quartz, Calcite, Lead, Tellurium, Copper, or Zinc. There is approximately one milligram of Gold dissolved in every ton of seawater; however, extracting it costs more than the value of the Gold. Scientists have estimated that all of the Gold that has currently been refined could be placed in a cube measuring 20 meters on a side.
The most malleable and ductile of all known metals is Gold. One ounce of Gold can be beaten into a sheet measuring approximately five meters on a side. Gold Leaf, which is a thin sheet of gold, is used in arts and crafts for gilding. A single sheet of gold leaf can be as thin as 0.000127 millimeters, or close to being 400 times thinner than a human hair. Pure Gold is too soft to work by itself; therefore, Gold alloys are used to make jewelry, such as Gold Post Earrings, decorative items, coins, and dental fillings.
When most people think of Gold post earrings, it brings to mind the image of a simple or basic object. Although this may be true, Gold Post Earrings come in all different shapes and sizes. When it comes to Gold Post Earrings, it's always a good choice for a girl or woman who has newly pierced ears, or for anyone who prefers a smaller gold earring with a little extra something. Those individuals that are allergic to almost every type of metal are usually able to wear 14K Gold Post Earrings.
The Gold Post Earring Collection features studs or dangles inlaid with Turquoise, Coral, Opal, Lapis, Multi-stone, and other stones attached to a 14K Gold Post. The Indians of the Zuni Pueblo are known for their lapidary skills and inlay work. Although the Gold Post Earrings have meticulous inlaid gemstones such as the Gold Opal Post Earrings or the Gold Lapis Post Earrings, and they may have been handcrafted using the same techniques developed by Native Americans, they are not Indian made.
