23.00 Karat Patent Yellow Gold
Genuine Leaf with Transfer Paper
23.00 Karat Patent Yellow Gold is the highest quality gold leaf available. These 23 karat gold leaves are double-pressed and Physically Vapor Deposited (PVD) to produce a true 23 karat gold leaf with exceptional longevity. 23 karat gold offers better wear resistance and contains no copper or silver, making it ideal for gilding projects that will be handled often or exposed to the elements. These 23 karat gold leaf sheets are supplied in books of 25 leaves and are 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" (85mm x 85mm). 500 leaves cover approximately 39.60 square feet.'
Karat refers to the purity of gold. 23-karat gold is purer than 18-karat, 14-karat, or 10-karat gold. The percentage of pure gold in each karat of 23k yellow gold is 23/24ths (95.83%), making it more valuable than 22k gold (91.67% purity), 21k gold (87.50% purity), and 18k gold (75% purity). Higher purity also results in a softer sheet of 23k yellow patent leaf that is less damage-prone than lower karats such as 22k or 18k yellow gold leaf. Real 23k yellow PVD Flake is twice the thickness of standard rubbing colors with twice the coverage.
