Scientists have developed tiny bugs that can turn useless hazardous chemicals in to 24-karat gold.

Huffington Post said:

The result of their research is actually an artwork, named "The Great Work of the Metal Lover". In features a portable lab in which the bacteria produce gold flakes in front of a live audience.

I want that bacteria.
I will beat it into submission to produce cost effective gold conversion. A little "shock therapy" might be in order here. :passifier:

Can we see if it will turn lead chloride into gold?

Cool, they should work the name "Midas" into the scientific bacterium name.

Omg is for real? It's from Huff Post so it must be legit... paperdryer is probably right about this being gold's possible market peak! Then again, do you think the distinction between Earth-made and man-made will have any form of competition? This is insane...

Just a thought for the serious researchers

In my exploration of ancient alchemists who were apparently on a cost basis and seemed to be succesful ....
There is both a chemical that is geological (metal acids etc that contain the metalic transformation "seed") but part of the secret was in a "phlegm" found in biology plants, animal, or the man himself that was then included with it in a subsequent distillation type process.  

Seems these researchers duplicated the metalic flake step of the old legends but are missing a few steps.  
Couldn't you introduce something biological to this as well and combine to work as a DNA RNA effect like in the process of cancers reproducing cells on a much faster scale?

I think the alchemists of today are missing the real importance of the work of old alchemy and that is the Universal Medicine that when assimulated by a human is very healing. Metallic gold was for the fakers and to fund the real alchemists in the ultimate transformation...themselves.

The gold is part of the source compound. The bacteria is just splitting the molecule. We got a long way to go to transform one element into another.
