How is Gold Formed

Gold was formed by being placed on the earth. Gold was laid down as rocks formed as part of that cooling process.

The amount of gold in the earth has been constant since then. Gold was formed in the sense of being made from other elements.


Gold formed off the earth, but is now part of it. It sticks around because it doesn’t react with things on the earth like water and oxygen.


A gold atom will always stay as a gold atom unless we force it to accept some other subatomic particles under extreme conditions.
