A day late for Epiphany, but here is my next element – gold, a gift of the Three Wise Men and one of the seven metals known in ancient times. Each of these metals became associated with one of the seven heavenly bodies (the Sun, the Moon and the five known planets) and each of these were thought to influence certain parts of the body. Gold was associated with the Sun, and thereby with the heart.
