How can I grow crystalline gold?
I want to know how to grow, perhaps electrolytically, crystals, crystalline masses and dendrites of gold. The bigger the better. I would rather not use cyanide.

A microbiologist has found that microscopic organisms known as extremophiles breathe in dissolved gold and out comes the stuff of gold rings, necklaces, and earrings. The finding may explain how some gold ore deposits formed. I have also heard of one instance where gold was found, apparently 'growing' on a boulder in a stream in the Yukon go figure.Stephen Durrant
