“Aurum Verus (True Gold)” 
Digital photography 

In return for his kind treatment of Silenus, King Midas was awarded the golden touch by the god Dionysus. This gift would soon become a curse, and after turning his daughter into the precious metal Midas lamented his golden touch. But there is a touch that turns everything to a far more superior gold, a spiritual gold, and such a gift is highly sought after. The question then is “What is this ‘true gold’?” and from whence does this secret gold receive its value?
