Golden Tooth

.

A Silesian child, in 1593, we are told, in his second set of teeth, cut “one great tooth of pure gold;” but Libavius, chemist of Coburg, recommended that the tooth should be seen by a goldsmith; and the goldsmith pronounced it to be “an ordinary tooth cleverly covered with gold leaf.”
