    Exclamation I think this is gold...??

    Hello,

    I was leaving Wally World... (I hate that store) I was looking down walking fast and I caught this glow in the parking lot. It was very tinny but was glowing like gold. I picked it up and it seems to be an earring back. I took it home and it failed 14k test, but when I test it for 10k it kinda stays but disappears if you stir it up. I'm guessing its 9k it weighs .02 grams (Two tenths of a gram) its worth about $3.00 hehe its gold so I'm happy.... Any other ideas, please comment.. Here are some photo's I hope you enjoy. (The dime is for size only).


    Keep @ It and HH !!

    You could be right, the acid test is/was very inconclusive..

    Pull out the strong magnet, usually those backs are fairly magnetic and if so will warrant the return to the sacred grounds where originally found... or the sewer or China...same thing.

    Congrats eagle eyes! When I go prospecting I'm taking you with me!


    I have found a stud earring and an actual stone I thought was a diamond it sparkled, in a Walmart parking lot!
    I thought maybe the "diamond" was Murphy being kind because I had found a gold ring minus the diamond, but no.
    I have several of those erring backs, I have never tested them but I'm thinking mine are Gold plated. I could be wrong.

    Not magnetic, the scratch mark stayed with the 10k acid but disappeared when I stirred up. I don't think your supposed to stir it though. I'm pretty sure its a low carat gold,
    I recognize that color/glow a mile away...

    Thanks for commenting everyone !!
