Real Gold Leaf Flake in Vial


Out of stock

Real gold leaf flake in glass vial. Gold is the most malleable of all metals. One single ounce of gold can be beaten into a sheet the size of 300 square feet. Gold leaf can be beaten thin enough to become transparent. Such semi-transparent sheets strongly reflect infrared light, making them useful as infrared (radiant heat) shields in visors of heat-resistant suits, and in sun-visors for spacesuits.

Gold leaf flake is also used on and in some gourmet foods, notably sweets and drinks as a decorative ingredient. Gold leaf flake was used by the nobility in medieval Europe as a decoration in food and drinks to demonstrate the host’s wealth. Great for your mineral collection, a gift or even in the classroom!
