There are enough precious metals burning deep inside Earths core to cover it in a thirteen-foot thick layer of high luster, extremely valuable bedrock (we choose to picture a globe of pure gold). The myriad of magical materials waiting to be mined or violently spit out by volcanic eruptions have fascinated mankind for millennia - especially when its destined for design.
