Bought a rock collection and a few of these were included. They are magnetic so I assume it is not mercury or gold or silver. Seems to have a gold tint on some of it, otherwise very shiny. Each is about 1" in size. Any guesses?

Very pretty! Might be native nickel: often magnetic and sometimes with that botryoidal form.
