High guys. I just took my new drywasher out for its maiden voyage. I was in the Bumble Bee,AZ area and i found a spot that looked promising, but all i found was this fleck everywhere. Its in the clay its in the classifieds. It changes color in different light. Sometimes its gold, silver, copper or just dark. Ive got some pics of it in a chunk of clay. Just curious if its mica or something else. Thanks

thanks for the replys. Im new to all this so im on a steep learning curve. Theres alot of different quartz in that area, including alot of rose quartz, is the gold exclusive to the white quarts or in all the different kinds?

I've seen gold colored mica flakes in granite, but take the stuff into the shade and it should lose most of it's color. Otherwise, you may have something else.

Gold ins't mandated to one color of quartz or another... and it's not even relegated to only being found where you find quartz... it's a good indicator, though, just like black sands. Just not mandated.
