Welcome to insane asylum. Your rocks appear to be stained quartz, Now if there are black lines through those rocks, I'd consider crushing them to powder then panning to find whatever might be inside. Most of us wouldn't go that far, so we just call them leaverites. Leaver right where you found them.

Is that what’s called “sugar quartz”?

If it’s been sampled from a gold bearing region, I’d say crush and pan.

Gold bearing ore doesn’t all look the same. It varies greatly depending on the type of deposit. Easy enough to test for free milling gold. Just my opinion.
