THE RIPPLES MUST BE ENDLESS...

2015

My name is Gold, my atomic number is 79, and my Symbol is Au. This comes from the Latin word ‘Aurum’, which means ‘shining or glowing dawn’. I am a key element in the transmittal of electrical signals throughout the body and I am within every one of you. I amount to 0.2 milligrams of your total body weight. If form was given to me I would be a solid cube of 0.22 millimeters.

I have been around forever. The Ripples must be Endless….
