    Isn't this a Gold Forum??,..

    Thanks Gary, they were detected with a GPX 5000 and 14x9 EVO coil. Nice nugget there, it does resemble mine, they have been squashed and rolled around a little bit.

    Can anyone identify this rock?

    Possibly Muscovite.
  5. It's Mica. A fairly common silicate that takes many forms.
  6. My son got this rock as a gift for his collection and we can't figure out what it is. We've been researching for months and still have no idea. Does anyone know? It has very thin layers that are pearly.

    Nice looking Montana nuggets you got there,...where you dredging, sluicing, or what to get them?? I have one here from Arizona that resembles you center-photo'd one, only it only weighs in at 5.78 Grams,.....looks kind of like yours though. Thanks for responding to my post. Gary

    GPX4500 on the way!

    Thanks for the heads-up. No rain here, and the wind finally dropped enough to get out for a couple hours. Just nasty wind chill. Detector seemed to work fine, though I didn't change much from the presets. I was about half a mile from some hi voltage power lines, not sure if that is close enough to matter, but there was some noise with the coil perfectly still, so I changed channels a few times, and messed with Rx gain. (I know better than to turn it up, but I also bet I'm not the first to try it:)) I "think" the threshold was smooth, but I'm not sure how good is good enough. I had been over the area before, with the Equinox, and it had tons of hot rocks. Didn't hear a one with the 4500. Unless that means I have a setting wrong, that's a welcome change! Can lids are terrifying. I figured surface objects would be loud, but that was a surprise. Wifey may be doing laundry tonight.... Good first shot with it, though. I did find a #2 lead pellet, at about 4". It's going to take awhile to memorize what each setting does, and try them all out. I enjoy the challenge! Regards, Kyle

  12. Not sure why you posted here WhiteFeather, not that it matters; just wondering if you were familiar with the subject matter at all, (Spanish mine monuments), and why you picked the name WhiteFeather? What answers/input are you seeking? Any Cause and Origin fire behavior experience? Any interest in nugget shooting or prospecting?

    Thinking about moving to Arizona - Where would you recommend?

    What do you guys think about Buckeye, Az? Are there any near by places to detect?

  15. If your rocks attract a magnet and look like this... then you possibly might have volcanic magnetite here. I've been to a site in the southwestern desert with specimens this large and abundant.

    Johnny Eagle is just too weak for surgery, so he will remain in a neck brace for life. So very sad for such a wonderful man. .

    GPX4500 on the way!

    Just keep in mind that your new detector or the coils are not water proof....don't let them get to much water on them if at all!!

    Welcome to the forum Missy! I have moved your post with your rock specimens and the replies into it's own topic, it is for now still in the meteorite forum section but I will most likely be moving into the Rocks, Minerals and Fossil forum so it will get more attention, but there will still be a link to get to the topic in the meteorties forum. The title of your topic is...."Missy's Rocks, what are they?"...I can change the title if you so desire just let me know what you would like it to be.
  21. Missy, Welcome to the forum! First I have moved your posts and the replies into it's own topic since this is someone else's topic and so you can get more attention from those knowledgeable with rocks to help ID your specimens, I may later move it to the Rocks, Minerals and Fossil forum section because I don't think they're meteorites as Bill has mentioned. Where were these found? If they were found in Florida I think they maybe fossilized coral, and if so some of them could also be agatized coral, which is Florida's state rock, on the outside fossilized coral and agatized coral looks the same but agatized coral when cut open reveals the agate portion which has formed inside.
