It’s December. Holiday time. What comes to mind when you think of these facts? Let’s start with COLOR. Red. Green. GOLD AND SILVER (this is part 3 of 3 part series):
SILVER is a metal AG (latin for Argentum which means grey/silvery). This metal is often known as a symbol for “light, purity, joy and glory”. Silver is a glistening tribute to the winter season; think of snow glistening in the sunlight as it appears to be silvery, almost diamond like. Silver has long been used as a world currency, but did you know that silver can kill bacteria? It was used to disinfect water and purify food for storage back in the middle ages.
GOLD is also a metal Au (latin for Aurum which means gold). This metal is often known as a symbol for “sun, perfection, prosperity”. Gold was one of the three gifts the Kings from The East brought to honor baby Jesus: gold, frankincense and myrrh. Gold has long been the basis for world currency. But, did you know that gold is edible? In olden times many kings entertained guests with elaborate food fare dusted with gold dust or gold flakes to show his wealth and kingship. Even today one can drink “Goldwasser” which is a traditional German herbal liqueur produced in Schwabach, Germany. All over the world there exists expensive cocktails with gold leaf (about $1k a drink). Gold is inert to body chemistry, has no taste and leaves the body unaltered.
GOLD and SILVER are beautiful metallic colors. They are beautiful in FASHION and they are beautiful in DECORATION. They are beautiful all over and nice in your pocket.
Go GOLD AND SILVER.
