How to (mabye) make gold

I do not recommend trying this without adequate protection from gamma radiation.  Creating gold may create gamma rays.

Coarsely crush quartz and mix in hematite powder.  Run superconducting hydrogen sulfide or hydrogen tellurium through the mix.  Collect the gold produced.  Getting the h2s or h2te to be superconducting is the tricky part, you would need high temperature high pressure tanks of it and run it through a (dry ice) chilled expansion valve into a tube containing the quartz-hematite mix.

the below was from old thoughts and didn't work
The mix would be iron powder and food grade diatomaceous earth melted at very high temperatures like the 5,000f with an HHO torch or oxyacetylene.  Potassium hydroxide may also help catalyze the reaction.  This is based on the notion that burning silicon can create iron and as iron is created it could catalyze gold creation.

I have been studying gold veins in quartz and it seems that superconducting hydrogen sulfide with quartz in the presence of catalysts (iron containing minerals and possibly others) can create gold.

"At pressures above 90 GPa (Gigapascal), hydrogen sulfide becomes a metallic conductor of electricity. When cooled below a critical temperature this high-pressure phase exhibitssuperconductivity. The critical temperature increases with pressure, ranging from 23 K at 100 GPa to 150 K at 200 GPa.[11] If hydrogen sulfide is pressurized at higher temperatures, then cooled, the critical temperature reaches 203 K (−70 °C), the highest accepted superconducting critical temperature as of 2015. By substituting a small part of sulfur with phosphorus and using even higher pressures, it has been predicted that it may be possible to raise the critical temperature to above 0 °C (273 K) and achieve room-temperature superconductivity"

hydrogen telluride is probably a superconducter at higer temperatures and is why telluride bearing gold viens can go deeper into the earth.  This would be great for gold production.
