I have a Rancilio Silvia made in 2007. I'm firing it up for the season and have gone through the descaling and backflushing. Water was running clean after two tankfuls. I started the machine today and ran some water through the wand and am getting gold metallic flakes. They are very thin and break up easily. Anyone know what this might be?

Likely some lining material from the brass boiler - it should subside after a while -- and is likely harmless.
