It looks good to me metal, our American friends usually call it mariposite but it looks vary similar to rock from larder lake area.  A quick check on google for gold and fuchsite deposits is a good read .

Hello Mental, I found the same type of ore. I started to polish one side of the rock and it came out very nice. Haves look at some older post and pictures.
Good find.
Cheers
