Who doesn’t like a gold bar? Certainly not anyone you know of. What’s not to like? Basically it’s a bar made out of gold and that is a sight for sore eyes. Have you ever experienced love at first sight before? It’s the same effect when you see a gold bar or a diamond the size of a fist.
Gold remains to be one of the most popular precious metal that are being sold on a global scale. This is because unlike diamonds that even a small crystal is very expensive, Gold can be sold cheaper. By mixing other metals to it, it becomes cheaper and made available for everyone and no matter how much your budget is.
Karat: It matters on the word “karat”, 24k is the purest one and nothing more because gold is soft, 24K is the only acceptable one that you can make this metal harder. A gold can be sold in lesser karats, and the lesser the karat the cheaper the gold is.
Can you tell: How can you tell if it’s a lesser karat? Some say it’s the color, but many people beg to differ because with white gold you really can’t tell, that is why the best thing that you can do if you’re not an expert is well… take it to the expert. Especially if you got yourself a gold bar.
Gold bars: still exist to this day, you may not see it in various jewelry shops because these gold bars are out of the naked eye and are in gold reserves. Various countries have these and believe it or not is the cause of some battles in history.
Why these things are made in the first place? no one really knows, but if you would think about it, you can’t just steal one and if you ever got one, sellers will verify if it’s stolen or not. The weight and size is it’s curse and it’s strength.
