    A few months ago, one of my patrons sent me a bunch of old gold jewelry for me to refine. I originally thought that it was going to just be some gold plated stuff, but it turned out to be quite a bit of gold. I was able to purify out all of the gold and then melt them down into some small 24K pure gold bars.

    Note: There have been some comments about the gold being stolen, but just to clear, I have verified that it wasn't.

      CrankyPants thanks man, I appreciate that. I’m a collector at heart and I woulda hated that. I got a good collection of mint proof sets too. My element collection is reaching the point where the metals I need are either radioactive and illegal or hard to get. One day I’ll get them all :P (probably not)

      benjamin shiffman I used to collect the pennies when I was younger. Had a really good collection of wheat pennies. I left to join the navy, though, and while I was gone, my parents got a divorce, packed up some stuff, dumped other stuff to quickly sell the house. I looked through the stuff that they saved and never found my collection. Somebody at Goodwill got a nice collection of wheat pennies. I'm sorry the comment section is so full of jerks.

    Dude you should like make some gold bars again and get papers to say it's real on percentage wise. And take the gold to a casino and see if you can gamble with it.... and record it while playing. lol crazy idea.

    Can anyone help me? Is there such a thing as pure gold? 100% I always thought that the finest gold has some small percentage of impurity. I am probably wrong, Please explain!
    999.999-six nines fine: the purest gold ever produced. Refined by the Perth Mint in 1957. It is still not pure since it is not 100%
