Gold or??

Recommended Posts

Wat makes you think this rather ordinary looking rock is gold?  

Not s very educated guess, but to me it looks volcanic and the yellows and reds could be an iron ore.

You would see gold shine in the sun and shade, and that looks like a dull yellow.  If there is the shiny yellow there, Locke it with a pin and if it breaks not gold.  If you’re really motivated, Chris it with a mortar and pestle and after about an hours worth of exercise, pan the sands and see if any gold comes out.  I’ve got a lot of good exercise from the mortar and pestle and a speck or two of gold to show from it.
