  1. Why don't you weigh them and give us an idea of the total weight? Someone might be interested in buying them based on a percentage of what silver is worth.
  2. You could tumble those coins with jewelry tumbling media and probably shine them up good. Anyone with a vibratory brass polishing machine and a charge of stainless steel media could do it in a couple hours. An old fashioned rock tumbler would do it too. I have tumbled some really deteriorated coins and it worked great. Im sure you could find someone close to you that does ammunition reloading that could throw them in with a load of brass and clean them right up. A sonic metal cleaner will do it too. There are special solutions for silver that get the job done fast. Lots of guys hav
  3. Welcome Sherlock! There is a small monthly fee of $20 that you can send to bedrockbob@gotcha.com. This is the place to be if you want to learn about detecting! Bob
  4. What is a "socialist type" program? Like roads? Police? Fire Department? Social Security? Water and sewage? What "socialist type" programs are you speaking about that will cause someone to be unemployed?
  5. Slim, I think you are completely unaware of what "some" want or why they want it. I want my royalties.
  6. It looks like the Pebble Mine won't be paying royalties any time soon... https://www.npr.org/2020/11/25/939010891/army-corps-of-engineers-denies-permit-to-controversial-alaska-gold-mine
  7. It is obviously worth many millions of dollars more than what Hutagalung was paid. It is fraud. An attempt by meteorite dealers to steal the meteorite from Hutagalung. I demand a recount.
  8. It looks carved. The outside rind differs from the inside. Are you sure it is stone? Could it be baked clay? How hard is it?
  9. You learn all kinds of new stuff on these forums don't you! I guess "Omars" all come from a certain formation. But there are lots of rocks that have spherical inclusions that weather out to leave sockets like that. What would you call a rock with a socket in it? Is there a geological name for that socket formed when a spherical inclusion drops out?
  10. You should check the laws in your area. In many locations glaucophane posession is a misdemeanor. Scratch tests are funky. It depends a lot on the texture of the surface and the shape of the tool that is doing the scratching. It is easy to misinterpret the average backyard scratch test. I bet a nickel that stone is serpentine. I would call it serpentine. Especially in a location where glaucophane is illegal.
  11. Morlock, I was going to comment about the olivine.... I have never seen Olivine in a flow like that. Only as crystals. And only in deep volcanics and in the Glorieta Pallasites. It was my assumption that olivine always formed as a crystal under some pretty good pressure. That is just based off my limited experience and nothing else. So im really not sure about that.
  12. Those are spherical inclusions in what appears to be a volcanic or sedimentary metamorphic matrix. There are stones with big spherical inclusions like those in several areas I am familiar with. In those instances the geology is volcanic. But... In my area almost everything is volcanic. From what I understand volcanic rocks are uncommon in your area. I would expect the darker rock to be sedimentary metamorphic rock of some sort with spherical mineral inclusions. I could be completely wrong about it though. I dont know much about rock ID like a lot of these fellows her
