Ever wondered what goes into the making of a tiny gold ring that adorns your fingers each day?
Well, a simple golden band is made of 10g of gold. To obtain this about 20,000 kg of rock is mined, combined with 7000 liters of water and 1.5 kg of cyanide sodium (enough to kill 30,000 adults). This concoction keeps the gold particles in the rock stick to one place while the muck is washed away.
The crude gold is then melted and polished to obtain your tiny, shiny piece of this precious metal.
Do you still think this is a tiny, shiny golden statistic?
