Genuine gold leaf is different from imitation gold leaf. The genuine is much more expensive, because they are made from real gold, whereas the imitation gold leafs sometimes called “gold leaf” —which is misleading— are made from copper, zinc and other alloy.
You can easily test any gold leafs by brushing it with some vinegar before you apply a sealer to it. If it does not change colour then its genuine but if it oxidize and change colour after a day or two then its imitation and not genuine gold.
In addition to the gold leaf packaging, we also use thick cardboard to protect your order and to ensure your order arrive in good condition.
