Not gold.

In future please refer to identity request instructions:

Tell us where it's from.

Did you find this somewhere? If so tell us where. If you bought it, tell us as much as you can about where you think it might be from. If you really have no idea where it's from please tell us so. We may still be able to help.

Any distinguishing features?

Describe anything you can that gives us more information than we can tell in the photograph. Does it seem heavier than normal (dense) or light? If you've done any other physical tests such as hardness or acid testing please let us know, but don't attempt these unless you know what you're doing.
