Hi Anyone can help me with this, 
It comes up with the same number as my 24 carrot gold ring on Xterra Gold edition.
But not sure what it is?

Pure gold is very heavy, nearly double the weight of lead so it is far heavier than iron. Just take it to a jeweller, they should know. Any gold prospectors near you?

A porcelain rub test:
http://www.ebay.com/gds/How-to-Test-Gold-/10000000177628090/g.html
Porcelain Tile Test
This test is easy to carry out and can be used as a good preliminary test. All the tester needs is a piece of unglazed porcelain tile which can be purchased at hardware shops or other places that sell home maintenance items.
To carry out this test, the tester rubs the gold item across the porcelain tile and inspects the color of the streak produced. Real gold produces a golden yellow streak. If the tester sees a black streak instead, then the item is made of pyrite rather than gold. This test is useful for distinguishing a pyrite, or fake, gold item from a real gold item.
