Thanks for the link, Rosalind, absolutely fascinating, of course.
just hope i don't get "gold fever"
Nah, it takes me back to various museums I have visited where there is always a mindboggling aray of gold trinkets and treasures, gave me visual indigestion.
I don't think I could ever eat it.
Eygpt and Tut are the supremo craftspeople but i probably will keep wearing my two little Ethiopian copper bracelets, thanks very much
"because of its historically high value, much of the gold mined throughout history is still in circulation in one form or another"
AND MANY MANY THANKS TO 360 FOR THIS POST
