Will iron shavings follow it after you stick a neo on it?

Being magnetic is one thing. Having magnetism is a completely different property. All magnetite is magnetic but only some displays magnetism. 

You might have a gold nugget that will make black sand stand on end when it passes under it. :idunno: Wouldn't that be something?

Cool beans!  I've always been fascinated regarding the oft repeated adage that, "Iron is the mother of gold."  However, I've found only a few gold nuggets over the years that strongly are attracted to a magnet.  Any possibility, Bill, that you found a meteorite?  That really would be awesome!!

Nice nug Bill. A few years back we found a wash in the LSD that gave up quite a few of those "sticky" nuggets.

WOW Bill,.... Now that's COOOOOOL !!!  Out of all of the washes that I have hunted over the years that where heavy in magnetite I have yet to find a clump of magnetite with gold within it.  I have found many gold nuggets that contain magnetite granules (and stained quartz) within the crevices of those nuggets though.  A wash that is heavily laden'd  with magnetite has always been a good indicator (for me anyway).
