Create one-of-a-kind jewelry with this 23.5-karat yellow gold foil. It is thicker and studier than gold leaf; its ideal for keum-boo, the centuries-old Korean art of gilding using heat and a burnisher to fuse very thin gold sheet to metal designs.
Each sheet is 23.5-karat (98% pure gold, 1.5% silver and 0.5% copper). This sheet is sold by the karat weight and not the shipping weight.
