Shaanxi Experiences Showers of Gold? No, just Sulfur

By Joanna Law (People's Daily Online)    03:39, August 28, 2015

Hundreds of people flocked to a crossroad in Mian County, Shaanxi Province, to pick up what they thought as gold early on August 26.

A large patch of golden powder was seen glittering on the crossroad since early that morning.

Numerous people hurried over to gather as much “gold” as they could; some called and asked their friends to bring a large bag over.

The crowd grew so huge that it paralysed traffic. And what was this sparkling powder really?

A logistic company nearby said that was just the sulfur powder happened to spill out from their truck.
