Gold or not?

Pyrite for sure. But like Geo said, that's from looking at the pics and your description of it being fragile.

Poke the pieces with a pin, if it cracks pyrite.  If it dents, gold.  If you're bored, crush it into dust and pan the dust.  If there's gold, it'll still be there at the bottom.  The easiest thing would be turn it in the light, gold will be shiny even in the shade.  Gold mica will not be shiny.
