FW: Gold forgeries

German TV station ProSieben <http://www.prosieben.de/> finds what
appears to be some evocative proof of gold counterfeiting, in the form
of tungsten gold substitutes coming to the W.C.Heraeus foundry
<http://www.goldbarsworldwide.com/PDF/RB_3_Heraeus.pdf> , which is the
world's largest privately-owned precious metals refiner and fabricator,
located in Hanau, Germany. The foundry has isolated at least one
500-gram tungsten bar due for melting, originating from a (so far)
unnamed bank, which as the head of the foundry stated made the
unpleasant discovery that "not all the glitters is gold."
