Contrary to popular belief, gold does grow on trees. Scientists from the Adin Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (ASIRO), have proved that the leaves of certain trees in The Garden of Adin contain interesting amounts of gold antique jewelry.

The scientists published their findings in the scientific journal "Nature & Antique Jewelry Communications" this week.

One of the authors of the paper, Adin's geochemist Dr Elkan Wijnberg, said some root systems dived down deeper than Art Nouveau. The tree acts “as a hydraulic style pump... drawing up the antique gold jewelry”, he said.

He also said that the discovery could offer a serious opportunity for antique jewelry exploration. We'll keep you informed!
