    You've introduced a lot of impurities into the gold, bruh. Make sure to get it refined. The inclusions aren't due to the "upsets" but due to those impurities and their effects on the grain structure.
    Notice he had a bucket down there to capture all that hold dust. Ha!

    if u eanna harden the gold, make a gold with silver alloy, will give it strength. and ig u want a red tint to it as well as hardening it, make gold copler alloy, will make gold to appear a bit red, used commonly in jewlery application 😀
