How about naturally occurring ice because ice is a mineral and water is not

  <-party->  <-party->  [-1st-]  {-applause-}  :) 

Wowwie !  We have a WINNER !!  Congratulations 'fire1'

Seems these contests which I think are going to last a bit, are getting won in no time flat.

For those that overlooked it, Naturally occurring Ice is defined as a mineral, as it has the following properties...  it is a solid, has a crystalline structure, has a definite chemical formula, and is inorganic..... water is not.  thus, a piece of gold in ice, is a mineral within a mineral..... add heat, the ice melts, leaving the gold in water.... of which water is not defined as a mineral..... so gold within water is not a mineral within a mineral.

fire1.... I will be in touch by regular email.

Again... CONGRATULTIONS

But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

One major-minor thing and one major thing to add.  The major-minor is that 'fire1' answered it to its fullest description, that being "Naturally" occurring ice.... for those wondering artifical ice is not considered a mineral.

The Major item of business is.... many thanks goes out to BioBert for his generous offer in sponsoring this contest by putting up the prize.  Thanks Vence !!!   {-applause-}  And all the best with your planned re-location to the Province of Quebec.

LOL - I knew it had to be a phase change but the element requirement had me down at liquid helium with its lowest boiling point so gold in liquid helium heated to anything would have caused it to boil and thereby liberate the gold.
The change to mineral after I went to bed muttering about that tricky Larry kept the phase change theme but a much more manageable scenario.  <-laugh->
Not many of us have a cup or two of liquid helium just sitting around and if you ever came across it in nature you better be wearing longies....or a space suit.
Congrats to fire 1 and a big thanks to BioBert and Larry!
Great contest.  [-1st-]
What the heck - lets just keep mixin' stuff together till it blows up or smells REALLY bad!
