Gold and silver have been used since ancient times as decoration in the clothing and textiles of kings, leaders, nobility, and people of high status. Historically, the metallic thread was constructed by wrapping a metal strip around a fiber core (cotton or silk), often in such a way as to reveal the colour of the fiber core to enhance visual quality of the decoration. Ancient textiles and clothing woven from wholly or partly gold threads is sometimes referred to as Cloth of Gold. Gold is the most desired of all metals; a single gram can be beaten into a sheet that is thin enough to become transparent. The transmitted light appears greenish blue, because gold strongly reflects yellow and red. Although gold is the most noble of the noble metals, it still forms many diverse compounds. The colour alone can be very reflective, while becoming the most dominant in its chemistry.

When we envision the colour gold, positivity floats into our minds and takes us to happy places. Coming off strong and alluring, perhaps gold has a reputation of being a bit mischievous especially in medieval times. It is believed that something so beautiful and rare has been shown to be good for your health.
