Additional information just came in from an expert  :cheers:

It turns out that "gold dust" is also applied as gold foil and then blown out. Which is quite logical: you would not want to fumble around with such an expensive fine powder. A sneeze could be very expensive indeed. :spls:

Ivo,

Does that likely make the dust in my piece of foil origin?  Which would also explain the Patterns in it like the "line"
