Where Did Gold Come From

This precious metal doesn't always have earthly origins. It actually came from space! Gold had a violent beginning. Coming from either a supernova or a collection of ultra dense celestial bodies. But how did gold end up on earth? Asteroids containing gold bombarded earth's surface. And over a billion years, that gold was concentrated into nuggets. Now most of the earth's gold is reportedly trapped near the core. It is believed that 80% of the world's gold is still underground.
