i think it has developed and adapted from the gold-gilded rocks in my garden (i gilded them last year with pure gold leaf)
it’s hard to see on the video, check out some of the frames it can be seen, i will try to get a proper photo if i find more of them.
epigenetics and environment are strong powers i think
