Caption: Gold sheet. Sample of gold in sheet form. Gold (Au) is a transition metal element. It has a melting point of 1064 degrees Celsius. It is soft and the most malleable and ductile of all the metal elements, and can be beaten into very thin sheets. This sheet is only 0.3 millimetres thick. In sheet form it is used as gold leaf to gild ornaments and other objects. It is also used as a soldering material, in photography and electronics, and as a precious metal in jewellery.
