Garden of Eden treasure?
August 16, 2012 5:32 PM Subscribe
I'm familiar with Genesis 2:11-12
which briefly mentions the existence of gold in the area surrounding the Garden of Eden. But are there any other ancient references, be they apocryphal, Talmudic, or in folklore, that links Eden with some sort of material treasure?

Obviously the "real" treasure of the story were the fruits of the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge. But I'm interested in any references to wealth-based riches.
