So called 'impurities' - which can themselves be precious metals - give gold its non-gold colors, like red gold (copper), white gold (palladium - among others), green gold (silver - among others) and so on. Pure gold never tarnishes and is supremely malleable (an ounce can be stretched into a thread more than 50 miles long) and because of its softness it is usually 'alloyed' or mixed with other metals to strengthen it and make it more durable. I grew up on a gold and copper mine and this metal has never lost its fascination for me. Entry in the Earth Science Contest.
