I just think there's something about gold to be explored.

Its not even controversial or anything but we know its extremely rare in our universe...and the earth's positioning, size, and relationship with the sun allows for it to form on our planet in particular. There's just something weird about it. If you go back, every EVERY culture looks to gold as a representation of power and might


Gold is not formed on this planet, or any planet.

???

edit...

ScienceDaily (Sep. 7, 2011) — Ultra high precision analyses of some of the oldest rock samples on Earth by researchers at the University of Bristol provides clear evidence that the planet's accessible reserves of precious metals are the result of a bombardment of meteorites more than 200 million years after Earth was formed.

Exactly, i too think there is much more to gold than its monetary value.

Yep, which im thinking attributes to why its so rare. Gold only gets spread throughout the universe when a neutron-rich supernova occurs...finding homes on neighboring planets.

It is why it's rare but all heavy elements with more mass than iron is formed in a similar fashion, from the supernova of massive stars(besides synthetic elements of course). It's valuable because of what chris999 said - it's pretty, it's malleable, and it's easily accessible. There's nothing greater about gold than the characteristics it has.

Also, the rarity of gold is an extremely relative thing. If Earth was in the right place at the right time we could have gold all over the place.

Well, to each their own, but i do think gold has unique energetic characteristics. As far as the OP is concerned, I believe earth was at the right place at the right time many years ago, hence the gold, which in turn had attracted those seeking it.
