The $4.2m Christmas decoration made out of pure gold


A Christmas tree made out of $4.2m (£2.6m; 3.3m euros) worth of pure gold has gone on sale at a Japanese jewellery store.

The 2.4m (7.8ft) high revolving tree features cutouts of Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell and Cinderella.
