Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

No, no one has guessed it yet.

For Anthony's, I was going to guess fire, but I think that's wrong. Parn's sun sounds more correct. I don't know...

I think Anthony's is probably the sun, too.

Talianna: infinity? Or, if we're just playing color games, can I be the first to guess 'brown hole'?

sorry crunchpatty, not infinity, though the answer is usually a metaphor for infinity.

And it comes in *many* colors! But brown isn't one of them. In fact, I'll give you a clue: the colors it comes in happen to be, scientifically, the colors of light, or aka the rainbow.

That probably didn't make much sense.

Anyway.... I'm starting to think this riddle is WAY to vague... ah well, maybe someone'll guess it

Is it a prism?

Nope, sorry ctown28

I guess normally you wouldn't think that this answer comes in all the colors of the rainbow, but scientifically it does. There are some in between colors as well...



Hint:





Pink! Heh, did that even do anything?

Anthony, could it be an atom?

Anthony, I change my answer. I didn't understand the "smallest" and other smallest. Pluto & Mercury. So the answer is the sun for sure.
My final answer ;)

Talianna is the answer the soul?

Here's a riddle for you all to chew on:

I am always worn
But not always presented
I shine as I adorn
I am teased and tormented
I die before I am born
But my loss is not always lamented
What am I?
