This chapter, which presents the case of the “gold leaf lady,” a Florida woman whose body would break out spontaneously and at close range in a golden foil that turned out to be brass, investigates why the phenomenon took the peculiar form of brass leaf and evaluates whether this should be regarded as a materialization or an apport. It also highlights the failure of the noted magician to replicate this phenomenon, and the botched attempt by the television show Unsolved Mysteries to study and document its occurrence.

Keywords:   gold leaf lady, Florida woman, materialization, apport, magician, Unsolved Mysteries
