If the "gold" takes the form of cubes , then it isn't gold ...

Hi Sweetep76.  I'm strongly inclined to go with RD on this one.  It looks like pyrite.  Also looks like you have some copper bloom (No 4).  Where did you find it?
 
There never was nothing.

Or, if the photos show true colors, I would suggest chalcopyrite.
