I have some gold in quartz specimens. I'm trying to find a way to remove the quartz from the gold without using hydrofluoric acid.
Does anyone have some suggestions?
Any help would be appreciated.

If not and it's a small speci I usually wrap mine in a bit of cloth and give it a gentle tap or three with a mash hammer.
Most of the time the gold stays intact with minimal damage.
And if you don't care about it smash/dolly and pan it,good luck.
