Gold | ɡəʊld | noun [mass noun]
1 A yellow precious metal, the chemical element of atomic number 79, used in jewellery and decoration and to guarantee the value of currencies. (Symbol: Au) [as modifier]: Gold earrings.
• [with modifier] An alloy of gold: 9-carat gold.
Gold is quite widely distributed in nature but economical extraction is only possible from deposits of the native metal or sulphide ores, or as a by-product of copper and lead mining. The use of the metal in coins is now limited, but it is also used in electrical contacts and (in some countries) as a filling for teeth.
2 A deep lustrous yellow or yellow-brown colour: The artist decorated the painting with liberal splashes of gold.
