Perhaps compare with
Pyrite is one of Earth's most common minerals. It is found almost everywhere and in almost every type of rock. Its metallic yellow color causes it to be often mistaken for the much more valuable gold. That's how it earned the name "fool's gold." Some people call this material "healer's gold" - but it has no medicinal value.

Hi Ernest,
As already responded to you by mail...I am quite concerned about this small statuette...Thanks for you geolological infos..But by searching on auriferous stone..I have learnt today that Black schist could could be as well...So don't you think that this stone could be a black shist shingle which could have been carved very long time ago during the Gandharan Period...??? All infos are welcome ,I am very excited about having as much as possible information from connoisseurs or collectors...Here attached what I discovered today that Black shist stone can be auriferous. Thanks for responding..JJB
