Re: What Dis?

There is absolutely no way to tell from the picture. If you think it's gold, take your pocketknife and place the point right on the metallic piece and push. If it deforms (like a soft metal) if could be metal like gold or copper or electrum. If it shatters, fractures or powders, it's pyrite.
What's the host material? Any history of having either pyrite or gold? What has been is probably is what is.
