Gold is a soft yellow metal, prized by humans for its shiny purtiness.
Gold was associated with "physical, mental and spiritual perfection.". The substance is often represented by a circle with a dot in the center, sometimes with a triangle-and-curlicue flourish on the upper right of the circle, or a number of other variations that bear some resemblance to a sun (there are also a number of versions of the symbol that don't look like the sun). Unsurprisingly, the symbol for gold is also used to represent the sun, which "dominates" gold in alchemical tradition.
