Gold (Paperback)

Regular price $9.95


This title introduces young readers to gold, the metal that can stay shiny for thousands of years. Learn how gold is formed and where it is found. Historical and modern mining methods are detailed, including the discovery of kimberlite pipes. The many uses of gold are examined, from industrial applications in products such as electronics to illuminated manuscripts and space telescopes. See how artisans such as goldsmiths and lapidaries use gold to create beautiful and useful jewelry. Finally, a list of tools and tips will set young rock hounds up to unearth their own treasures. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text.
