In regards to testing genuine gold foil versus imitation, you might want to
try one of these kits:

I don't know if they work on stamping foils but you could always send the
supplier an e-mail to confirm this. They have an "ask the boss" a question

Good luck!

Any clever ways to tell genuine gold foil from imitation? (other than
stamping leather and waiting 6 months)
