Details for Gold

Use for items where the colour is yellow and lustrous and the object feels heavy. Pale gold may contain a high proportion of silver; you can use the words ‘pale gold’ in the Description field, or occasionally you might want to use the word ‘electrum’ for the same thing, although this term is now quite unfashionable.
