ABOUT/WHAT IS GOLD
Gold is bought and sold everyday around the world on the gold markets. Gold is chemically very stable. Gold is quite soft it is slightly harder than a fingernail but not as hard as a coin or glass. Gold is either inside rocks or mixed with river sand. some miners that were digging have found big nuggets of pure gold.
