could you teach me in some way, Kephra, to gold plate quartz? I am a jeweler and would love to give it a shot! ;D
I have plated quartz with gold thousands of times, as well as chrome, silver and nickel.  But the way I did it was by evaporating the gold in a vacuum chamber allowing it to condense on the quartz.  Usually, I evaporated chromium onto the quartz first as it bonded better.  The gold started out as wire, cut to a specific length, and put into a tungsten filament.  High current through the filament evaporated the gold. 

That's the only way I know to do it except by sputtering, but I didn't personally use that method.  As you can guess, the equipment to do either of these methods is terribly expensive.
Colloidal Silver is only a bargain if you make it yourself.

Yes I haven't come across a tungsten filament vacuum tube in my jewelry supply catalog!  ::)
