Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Russian customs seize 4kg gold chain”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A huge gold chain, weighing almost four kilograms, has been seized by customs officials in the city of Yekaterinburg in Russia.

It turned out to be a hefty gold chain made of unsoldered rings, estimated to be worth around 10 million rubles (almost $164,000).
