Description: Gold is a soft metal with a characteristic shiny yellow color. It has the highest malleability and ductility of any element, and can be beaten into a film only microns thick. Gold is unaffected by air, water, acids (except aqua regia, HNO3-HCl) and alkalis. It is used as bullion, in jewelry, electronics and glass, to color it and as a heat reflector.
