Gold Dust (砂金, Sakin; Literally meaning "Sand Gold"), is the name of the weapon used by Angra Mainyu. Due to the diamagnetic properties of gold, small particles of it could be manipulated in a similar manner to that of the sand utilised by Shukaku's jinchūriki, through the Magnet Release kekkei genkai.

In sufficient quantities, this sand gold could be fashioned into a diverse range of forms.[1] By constructing more complex structures, a user could use it to perform even more intricate tasks.[2]

Trivia

  • Gold isn't a magnetic metal like iron, nickel or cobalt. However, it is diamagnetic.
  • Gold is approximately 7.3 times denser than silica, the main component of sand; and about 3.7 times denser than magnetite, the main component of Iron Sand.
