Trying to Identify Ore

pics attached close up and angles

I believe this ore to be Cavarite ...(Krennerite or Sylvanite or Combo? or least gold Telluride Calaverite?  I have acid washed this Specimen once 2 weeks ago with muratic and it stayed same pretty much except got brighter. I this rock /crystal specimen is extremely heavy it is 66 pounds and like 1ft high  6 inches wide and non magnetic,

SOMETIMES IT LOOKS LIKE A WHITE SILVER WITH GREY TO BLACK SOMETIMES A MORE CRYSTAL GREEN HUE...KINDA WEIRD

has lattice pattern through out specimen and crystalizes in straight lines. I have included close ups and recent and before acid wash pics  and rock when wet and dry.

I live in the mountains in San Bernardino, CA and found this piece in a untouched strange flat looking outcropping that was rows or lines of similar pyrite looking rocks lay or lined up flat....

(also chisled off some what looked like gold or silver and it was malable and seemed heavy enough in the pan MOST OF IT DID ANYWAY)

I TRIED DOING STREAK TEST MMM NOT POSITIVE BUT KINDA A LIGHT YELLOW TINT OF GREEN?

any help appreciated thank you

Thanks I did a positive reaction with a small piece of the ore, and it was AU definately that it converted reacted into. I will have to extract the gold now, wow 66lbs at 40% gold is a lot of cash, rags litterally to riches , and I know there is more where that came from in the side of a mountain. know one bothers to care about. even if not 40% at any percent is alot of money but it is 40n or higher because i took a random spot on the rockl  to do my test and there it was AU GOLD ...YIPPEE!!!!!! 🙂
