A brick composed of pure gold

Why Gold?

Gold is considered the holiest of materials, though not the rarest, and has been since the beginning of civilisation. It is very unreactive (it's a noble metal) and so can stand up to the might of the elements (nobody wants their temple to fall down). It is also the most malleable and ductile of all metals making it easy to shape it into bricks. The only downside is that gold tends to very expensive and golden bricks even more so.
