Crews are applying approximately 140,000, 3 1/8' x 3 1/8' gold leaves on top of the copper plates that cover the dome. The leaves are rolled out of 24-karat gold and contractors estimate it will take about 60 ounces of gold to cover the entire dome. (Photo by Kathryn Scott Osler/The Denver Post via Getty Images)
