    Unexpected find...

    Nice finds. Did you know if it floresces?

    12.6 gram gold specimen

    Nice find. I'd like to know what formula you use to determine the weight of the gold.

    gold mining in Tanzania

    So you're the one sending me all those gold scam emails.
  5. Amazing what they keep finding overseas https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/62323-king-bluetooth-treasure-found.html#ampshare=https://www.livescience.com/62323-king-bluetooth-treasure-found.html

    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    I've used HFL acid many times previously and am well aware of the potential hazards. I just wanted to know what type of results might be expected when using it on a electrum wire on matrix specimen.

    Today's Butt Ugly Half Gram Nugget

    Would HFL brighten a small specimen of electrum I found years ago? It's a neat looking electrum wire in matrix but it doesn't look bright because of the copper and silver in it.

    Watch Your Step

    Nice pics. I saw a black snake with yellow or gold markings many years ago. I couldn't see the tail so I couldn't tell if it was a rattler or not. What color are the markings on these?

    What is this

    Just when you think you've seen everything, it turns out you haven't.
  10. Mining the seabeds are going to be hard enough to do. Mining just the vents is even more so and makes less sense economically. I think there's only one company in the world attempting to mine the seabed. http://www.nautilusminerals.com/irm/content/overview.aspx?RID=252&RedirectCount=1 I just found this article today. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/04/12/japan-rare-earths-huge-deposit-of-metals-found-in-pacific.html

    What is this

    Anyone heard of rainbow calsilica? Not on par with Fordite but still interesting material. https://www.google.com/search?q=rainbowcalsilica&tbm=isch When this first appeared on the market, people stated it came from a single mine in Mexico. Then someone tried to investigate the mine and found out it was a hoax. http://invoguejewelry.blogspot.com/2015/05/rainbow-calsilica-is-it-real-gemstone.html?m=1 http://treasuretrunkdesigns.blogspot.com/2011/06/calsilica-mysterious-wonder-stone-or.html?m=1

    What is this

    http://www.fordite.com/cabochon-gallery.html http://www.fordite.com/jewelry-gallery.html Have seen this material but you'd think it would be too soft to work with. But amazing looking cabochons.

    Mineral Tresspass

    Just about anyone who hunts for gold knows all about the laws regarding claims and mineral rights. No offense but most likely they just don't care. I wish you luck.

    Rye Patch ?

    You won't have any trouble getting around. Just make sure you have 10 extra spare tires.😊

    Vintage Goldwire Specimen Stickpin F/S

    I just watched this crystalline gold stick pin close on eBay for spot gold price which is a shame. I know someone from Mindat would be interested in it at a much higher price but they don't allow ads. Have you tried contacting a high end dealer like Kristalle? Maybe they would pay you a price that would satisfy you and give them an opportunity to make a little money as well.
