There have been a few threads on Tungsten in gold bars on ATS like
but did you know in the land of the fake goods aka china a company is
selling these things online and sells them as a perfect copy that can't be spotted by
x-ray or weigh.
How to Make Gold-plated Tungsten Alloy Bar?
Start with a tungsten alloy about 1/8-inch smaller in each dimension than the tungsten alloy golden bar you want, then cast a 1/16-inch layer of real
pure gold all around it. This product would feel right in the hand, and tungsten alloy golden bar would have a dead ring when knocked as gold should.
Gold-plated tungsten alloy bar would test right chemically, weigh exactly the right amount, and alsgold-plated tungsten alloy baro pass an x-ray
fluorescence scan, the 1/16" layer of pure gold being enough to stop the x-rays from reaching any tungsten.
The company sells them for "for souvenir and decoration purpose" but i think we know
the real reason they make them so if your a gold bug be careful as there might be more
of these bars around than you think.
