Yeah, I don't think you will be damaging any gold. Just smash it and pan it off.

I dont think you will get any signal in cancel mode, especially on a tiny speck of gold (if it is gold) that size. What you need to test it is a Falcon MD 20 or a Gold Bug 2. If you crush & pan it you wont damage the gold. Try crushing it carefully. Put the stone on a hard surface & cover with an old rag or towel. That will stop the pieces flying off in to space lol! Give the stone a gentle smack with a hammer. Just enough to break it in to a few pieces to start with. Inspect it to see if it has broken around the "gold" area & maybe exposed more of it. Let us know how you get on. Cheers
