Gold and silver were found in nuggets, from which jewelry was made. At the end of the second – beginning of the first millennium BC.  people learned to work with iron. Iron is not found in nature in its pure form. It is mined from iron ore. At very high temperatures, people began to smelt iron with the help of special furnaces.
