Strange black sand in my medal`s depressions...

Hi,

looking at some of my campaign medals under magnification, I realised some sort of green paste OR very fine, glittering black sand in the depressions of the letters on the obverse and reverse - are these cast fakes with a rest of the casting mould sand on it ?
