There’s a reason why men of character choose platinum. It’s the one metal that embodies how rare they truly are. This is because platinum was created when two universal bodies collided in a supernova explosion, roughly over 2 billion years ago. A meteorite, the result of this supernova, rich in precious metals, crashed into the Earth’s surface, leaving very few platinum deposits.
As a metal of exclusivity, platinum is 30 times rarer than gold. In fact, if all the platinum ever mined were melted and poured into an Olympic-sized pool, the platinum would barely reach your ankles. Gold, however, would fill three pools.
Even today PT is found in only a few select locations around the world. Simply put, platinum is exceedingly rare.
Much like the values that define a true man of character.
