stardust and the big bang

 

periodic_table_of_elementsI love the Periodic Table of Elements! I keep this chart where I work to remind me of the origin of the materials I work with. Noble metals are primordial,meaning they existed and formed before the earth formed, from cosmic events such as Supernovas. Gold {Au} is my favorite metal to work with,not only for its beauty but for how malleable it is. Gold doesn’t tarnish as other metals do, conducts electricity well, and is impervious to all chemicals except Mercury and Aqua Regia. We only use recycled precious metals, as most jewelers do, so in this way,gold keeps getting found, formed, melted, worked and re-worked all the while looking amazing! So, here is to you, Gold and all the other beautiful metals out there that we all wear to adorn ourselves and make life a bit more beautiful!  We all need a bit of stardust in our lives!
