No, a substantial amount of the decorations from the clock face and up contain 24k gold... quite a bit of it too. There was an article posted here saying how much on the clock face (probably 15-30 pages back), and I remember them saying that ALOT was used.

maybe you meant "Gold Platting" which is a 24 K gold at the end of the day
and the official report says (The clock tower has an amount of gold equals to the mass of two full floors of the tower)
I'll leave the calculations for you

Last time I checked you have, you are going off topic. Go on facebook to talk random things about and to people, this is SkyscraperCity Forums and this is the "MECCA | Abraj Al-Bait Endowment | 601m | 1972ft | 95 fl | U/C" post where we talk about the Abraj Al-Bait Endowment. Remember: this is not facebook or whatever else you use.
