1) you can do from general knowledge

or see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold

2) is an interesting question as you need to define the property, before you can state a difference. For example gold is very much more dense than 'ordinary' rock (what ever that is), so there is a big difference. Both 'ordinary' rock and gold are found naturally in the ground, so there is no difference in the source.
