Leaf Gold

Or gold leaf. A very thin sheet of gold obtained by hammering out the mass metal. It is much used for artistic and decorative work on account of its great permanence. "Gold-beating," as the manufacture of gold leaf is called, is one of the oldest of the arts and has so far defied all attempts to mechanization. Gold leaf as thin as .000004 of an inch has been obtained. Very thin "leaves" of gold transmit green light.
