    Pre gold melt: The gold is gonna be hard to melt since it is very thermally conductive. Its gonna heat everything it touches before it starts melting

    Yall should add some glasses to the sunbeam blaster. Use 2 dif size magnifier sizes. Should allow you to adjust and fine toon the size of area you want to burn. And should allow you to make way more heat as well.. ;-)

    had you been able to add a black mark or had you been able to place it in a killn, then that bar would have been reduced to liquid. in short a solar powered Smithing Forge..thus giving that gold bar a 0 chance...curiously, what would have occurred had you melted that bar? a million dollar bar would not be easy or would they have re-Melted the bar in to its original form?

    The reason they're confident is because gold has a pretty high melting point and because it's reflective, a lot of the heat energy is reflected off of the bar. sand it and make it less shiny and it'd more than likely get much hotter.
