What girl doesn’t love a little gold? Howdy folks, it’s Chelsea Dobbie, Special Reports Correspondant, World Traveller, and your favorite Aussie. This week’s post is a shiny one. Today we are going to discuss a metal that is not only precious for its beauty, but also for the way it shaped America. You’d be surprised to find out how such a small nugget can become the catalyst for a world of change. Read on to find out why gold is important and why Americans, especially Californians, owe a lot to gold!
The History of Gold
Gold is a beautiful substance that can be found all around the world, it’s in our oceans and on all seven continents. It is an element that has had a long history and has been used in civilizations for millennia. Gold, once seen as the sacred element of the gods by ancient South American civilizations, has now taken on a new identity. The Aztec word for gold, "teocuitatl," translates to "excrement of the gods." The shiny nuggets that could be dug from underground went from being spiritual, to being opulent.
Apart from being shiny and fun to look at, gold is fascinating. Did you know that out of the 92 naturally occurring elements found in the earth's crust, gold ranks 58th in rarity? And that some sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis receive injections of liquid gold in order to relieve their pain? Gold is a cool conductor that has also managed to help propel people's lives. In 1869, two fellow Australians unearthed the world's largest nugget of gold. They named the nugget "Welcome Stranger”, it measured 10 by 25 inches before it was melted down, and it managed to put these two explorers on the map. Modern day western culture still honours gold, just not the way the ancient and or native cultures did and still do. For us, gold represents wealth and beauty, not the rain of the sun, as the Inkas of Peru once believed.
California, Give Thanks to Gold!
Another fun fact… gold is the state mineral of California and Alaska. This makes a lot of bloody sense considering both states had a Gold Rush. But, unlike California, Alaska does not have to thank the Rush for its creation.
The discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento Valley is what sparked the 1849 Gold Rush. This event was arguably one of the most significant events to shape American history during the first half of the 19th century, because as news spread about the discovery, more and more people decided to head to the new world in hopes of striking gold. Thousands of prospective gold miners rushed to the state and by the end of 1849, the non-native population of the California territory was over 100,000, an impressive number compared to the 1,000 non-native population of the year before. After the Rush, there was no looking back, America was on the fast-track to becoming a rich nation full of young hopefuls willing to put in some hard yakka. In short, California was going off, y’all!
