Gold is the internal temporal pulling metal. An Allomancer burning gold is able to see who they could have been in the past, had they made different choices. Feruchemists can use gold to store health. When used as a Hemalurgic spike, gold is thought to steal temporal Feruchemy.
A gold Misting is known as a Augur. An Allomancer burning gold is able to see a hallucination of who the user could have been, known as a "gold shadow." Due to the emotional stress associated with seeing one's alternate past, gold is not a very useful metal. Furthermore, touching the gold shadow while burning gold causes unpleasant side effects.
A gold Ferring is known as a Bloodmaker. Gold is used to store health. A goldmind can be tapped to both heal at an accelerated rate or to heal from wounds that would normally be fatal. It is hard to fill a goldmind, due to the fact that it requires the Feruchemist to spend time sickly and weak. Gold does not heal diseases as efficiently as it heals wounds.
Gold healing works by aligning an individual's Physical aspect to their ideal self as recorded in their Spiritual aspect. This does not prevent them from aging or certain genetic diseases as those are considered part of the ideal.
It is not currently known what gold's Hemalurgic property is. It is theorized that it steals Feruchemical Temporal powers.
