Is it an aerial view of some country ?
Looks to be Gold from a mine.
Fool's gold...? ;-)
That does look like strands of gold on a piece of rock - given the background - my guess is its on display somewhere
How long will you keep us in suspense, oh Sinchy? (By the way, I think it's gold, but it does look kind of like an outer-space view of a Star Wars planet, except for the right edge.)
Oh, and I bet it was found on the property of one of the miners you like.
recovered material from a returning space probe. most likely The Andromina Strain. it will mutate into a harmless version somewhere over the pacific where the sea water will destroy it...
gold or black gold Alaska
Well... most of you guessed it... that's gold. But not just any gold... that's a photo of a segment of drill core from the Red lake region of Ontario... from the recent bonanza grade find at Rubicon Minerals' Phoenix Gold project.
Read here for my recent article on the find!
26 ounces per ton of gold is the highest grade ore I've ever heard of.
Disclosure: I own Rubicon Minerals, and have for several years.

... gets the prize for knowing me best... :)
That was a cool thought... after you wrote that I could totally see what you mean... the gold looks like the way lighted areas of higher population density do on nighttime satellite images. That's some beautiful rock...
Gold is sometimes visible in ore samples, but again... not often to the extent as in the pictured sample.
I'm sticking with Rubicon for the long haul. Of course, the stock has moved quite a bit on the news, so please enter with caution if you're thinking of climbing aboard.
