The dark side of the Force? More like the shiny side.


    Weird that its 24ct. It's horrible to work with if you are making from scratch. It must me electroformed or prototyped over a pattern. :/

    There's no way that's solid gold and weighing 15kg. If it was solid, looks like about its volume would be maybe 15L and the density of gold is 19.3g/cm3 which is 19.3kg/L, so it would weigh like 290kg.
