Hey everyone, long time no see.

Quick question, has anyone used these kinds of gold flakes in their alchemy?
They come in small bottles for around seven bucks in novelty gem stores.. Kinda cheap given the price of gold isn't it?

A friend, who is an artist and works in alchemy inspired art (i.e, "art" in the most popular meaning that the word has) used them in sculptures as decoration... and they developed a LOT of green rust in just weeks (probably because of the glue he was using).

So.... he was told he was buying "gold"... but it was something with a lot of copper.

That's all I know about similar products... not everything they sell as "gold" is literally gold.
