Why Is Gold So Rare, Where Does it Come From, and Why Is Gold Found Everywhere?

Gold is very rare, but it’s also very malleable.

If, since the beginning of time, all the gold ever mined were to be lumped together, it would make a cube about the size of a tennis court.

A cube the size of a matchbox can be flattened into a sheet that would cover that same tennis court, and one tiny ounce of gold can be stretched into a wire fifty miles long.

A little gold goes a long way.

Gold can be found all over the world, from California to ocean water.
