    Worked stone from MA?

    Greg I'm not really seeing any type of workings on that particular stone so I'm thinking it's a work of mother nature...just my opinion. Good luck in the field and HH!
  2. Yesterday while walking down a freshly laid limestone gravel trail I "eyeballed" what appeared to be an old clay marble :>) This limestone rock was hauled in from another location and is commonly used in this area for paving purposes. A bit further down the same trail I started noticing more clay marbles mixed in with the limestone of varying size and color?? I thought to myself at that point something is not adding up here? I'm thinking what I actually found were ceramic catalyst balls that were discarded around some chemical plant and that limestone was hauled here for paving purposes. Ha! Like I said...too good to be true!

    Equinox 800 in hand

    Above all other things...have fun while learning how your new detector operates and post how it's working out for you. Good luck and HH!
  4. At least you found a few older coins...did that copper tag have any markings/writing on it? There is an older city park just down the road from me that has been in operation since 1924 but unless you search the outer "fringe" areas you can't find the old coins you know are there. I am convinced they are lying under decades accumulation of crown tops, foil, pull-tabs and aluminum screwcaps so thick they are completely masked from any detector :>((

    Got a Haircut today

    Looking good...the only item missing from this photo is a gold pan! Gotta love that shorter hair for maintenance. When I was younger I would grow facial hair but now that I'm older it drives me crazy...too darn prickly. HaHa!
  6. Very nice find....looks like it could have some age also?!

    Yesterday's Gold

    Nice looking little nuggets to add to your growing collection of GM 1000 dinksters :>) The apparent GM 1000's ability to smooth out hot rock signals has my curiosity going!

    Mineral Tresspass

    How in the world could one go out for a relaxing day of prospecting while at the same time having to look over your shoulders for the legal owners...not to mention possibly being caught on camera
  9. Looks like a nice outing you had on clad-stabbing...not to mention that great "eyeball" find

    Petrified wood from NE FL

    Yes I have heard that Florida is quite an area for finding fossils :>) I read some time back that the white sand beaches that Florida is known for on the Gulf of Mexico side were deposited by the erosion of the Appalachian Mountains. Best of luck to ya'll on future hunts...whatever your treasure may be!

    Petrified wood from NE FL

    Hi Bigrex, I don't know much about Florida off-hand but seems to me they would have areas for finding petrified wood.? I once fished a lake in Texas that was roughly 120 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico that suprisingly abounded with smaller pieces of petrified wood. Most was regular type petrified wood with some pieces being opalized (not precious) and not quite as often you would find petrified palm-wood. After doing some research back home I found out that area was the Gulf of Mexico shoreline back during the Oligocene Epoch Era (40-25 million years ago)! How things change thru time Best of luck to you and HH!

    Rough nuggets, how far can they travel??

    How SWEET those frosted flakes look! Congrats

    First Equinox800 gold

    Seems the 800 is a solid "All-Purpose" type detector for those times when you want to travel light and still cover all your hunting needs!

    Petrified wood from NE FL

    I'm no expert but some of those pics resemble petrified bone?!

    LSD camp out

    Awesome pics Knowing me I would have kept that homemade wire/wood ladder for home décor. Ha!
