Music recording certification is a system of certifying that a music recording has shipped, sold, or streamed a certain number of units. The threshold quantity varies by type (such as album, single, music video) and by nation or territory (see List of music recording certifications). Almost all countries follow variations of the RIAA certification categories, which are named after precious materials (gold, platinum and diamond).

Various amounts of gold can be found in some large appliances such as microwaves, washing machines, and TVs. Now let’s look at platinum, represented by the symbol Pt on the periodic table. Platinum is also used to make jewelry and looks similar to white gold, but when compared side by side with white gold you can see that platinum has a more grayish color. Platinum doesn’t fade to yellow like white gold but the finish will dull, so like white gold, platinum jewelry may require some maintenance to keep it shiny
Platinum was the same color as silver but it resisted melting or forging so the Spanish government banned it from being imported in the 17th century. The little bit of platinum that did make it to Europe entered as contraband. In the 18th century platinum had captured the interest of the scientific community. They first thought it was an alloy of gold and iron and in 1751 they concluded it was in fact, a new metal.
