    Fake gold challenges bullion testers

    The mass or size to weight ratio is the tell.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake.

Going back is the quickest way on.” ---C. S. Lewis

    Even amateur gold bugs would know something is wrong just by looking at it. When a bullion round or bar is either twice as voluminous or half as heavy, it's easy to tell it's fishy.

    I was thinking the same thing. If someone even knows of an ECM tester or how to use it, you'd think they'd notice a bar twice the size of a real gold bar.

    In the world there is only one metal, which is ideal for fake gold. This is wolfram. According to its properties, wolfram is a refractory and heavy metal of light gray color. The density of wolfram is almost the same as that of gold.
