    It's a shame that you are taking good advice as a personal attack. No one has been rude to you in this thread.

    I am blinded by gold fever and suffer from an affliction. That is what a grown man geologist said instead of explaining how to tell the difference between gold and mica

    Do you not realize you are in good company here? These forums have literally thousands of members who will affirm that they suffer from the affliction of gold fever. The fever is only a bad thing when you make decisions contrary to common sense and generally accepted science.

    Guess what sweetie... I have gold fever... I'm disgustingly afflicted with it... And I'm proud of it.

    Georgia Gold Best thing to do is get the gold bearing maps or go to Dahlonega Ga. I have hiked many of the forrest and Mtns there and there are whole ridges that look like gold but are not. Here is a chunk that wants to be gold but is not. I do have a little gold from Ga though. They find it often..

    This is not gold but from Ga

    People want gold, most prospectors jokingly acknowledge "the fever." You seemed to be convinced it was gold in your videos, telling everyone to watch and see that it isn't mica. Opinions here told you the opposite and you came here for the opinions. Short of going to an assayer, I would find someone that knows how to pan gold and give it a little shake. Gold is a lot heavier than those specks and, if you do have some in that vial, it wont move like that in a pan.

    The easiest way to see the difference is weight, but you'd need to find someone familiar with how gold moves in water. It doesnt float, not like that.

    Hey thanks Meeo. I posted one video where it sinks pretty quick. Of course biotite might sink quickly too. I will try to find some prospector nearby to help me.

    If you read the op's of the link I posted, 2nd post. He quite clearly says he told you it was not gold on the 31st of December, or earlier.
    But, OK. You win and I'm wrong.
    Keep at it. I'm sure you will find some real gold specimens to sell if you keep at it.

    That's the route I'd go with. Who knows, you may have some bits in there but its hard to identify by sight and metal detectors. Definitely seek out a prospector, at the very least they would be able to show you how gold moves compared to other stuff. From then on you'd be able to check all the stuff you find yourself and be more confident with it. Once you see how gold sinks and settles it's almost unmistakable compared to other materials.

    Thanks Simbad,

    The December post was about a piece of white quartz with mica on it not these small nuggets. I do have some rock with gold flake from a nearby goldmine but it looks the same to me.

    I have to agree . I would clean it up but it appears to just be a misunderstanding on intent

    I came here for an answer and the men back each other up over things that have nothing to do with my question.
