    Nope, lead has a totally different tone.... Find some can pull tabs and listen to them, that's the tone you're looking for.

    gold jewelry has such a vast range of karats, mixed metals, sizes and shaped that there is NOTHING you can use to "mimic" a gold item. They respond everywhere from the very lowest of you conductive range (like a tiny piece of foil) all the way up to a copper cent. If you want gold, you have dig everything that isnt iron
