    Gold mineral found in MI Septarian (Lightning Stone)

    I found a ton of septarians today in Lake Michigan just south of Saugatuck. One unusual one had super sparkly gold next to the calcite that ran through the whole thing. It was a break from a larger piece. The pictures don't do it justice to how sparkly it it. I imagine it is pyrite...any other ideas?
