Homer, in the "Iliad" and "Odyssey," makes mention of gold as the glory of the immortals and a sign of wealth among ordinary humans. Gold has always been a major part of human civilization and nearly everyone who has found it has been impressed. Gold has been used in the ancient world to symbolize wealth and nobles, played a major role in the expansion of the United States with the Gold Rush, and continues to be used as a decorative element in fashion and home furnishings.
