    Awesome honestly thank you guys sooo much. (Sorry for late reply!) This helps me tremendously, It's in a very copper-silver rich area, the quartz even has lots of malachite and azurite running through it. Thank you for noting the relationship between copper colors and gold (especially chalcopyrite) this actually helps me alot. I'm gonna continue looking into what this is for a while. Sounds to me like it's most likely pyrite. (It's float by the way! But I think I know then exact outcrop it came from, there are a couple large visible quartz veins about 50 feet up the cliffside above where I found it. Gonna look into this, and if its gold I will look around for more and see if its worth going up!)

    ^^^ IF it "floats by the way"it sure isn't gold.A inexpensive gold detector would help you a ton.Or even borrow one.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    get a piece of quarry tile and scratch it on the unglazed side of that tile and if it is gold there will be a golden streak left... if it is not gold (mica, etc) there will be a black streak.
