"Detecting a high-quality tungsten alloy fake gold bar would be extremely difficult. It would likely require significant and material alterations to the bar being tested and this would negatively affect the marketability if its hallmark veracity were vindicated. Some applications require the tungsten to be fake gold. The main reasons for tungsten fake gold bar are to protect the wire from corrosion or to solder it to other metals. "


LOL, please, may I have another???

I believe a decent UTG (Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge) will catch out any tungsten fake bar, and they are getting charper all the time.
