  1. Possibly a Dog Tooth calcite geode encased in the rock?
  2. IMO, looks like Rhyolite with a vug in the rock caused by trapped gasses, containing possibly calcite or quartz crystals .
  3. That was my point . . .
  4. The posts are Interesting, in a cautionary sense. Unfortunately, not everyone believes in the above.
  5. Not withstanding the negativism and redirection away from the central issue under discussion, I think it's a fair question to pursue in order to resolve the inconsistency. Maybe there is more information to be gleaned by further inquiry.
  6. "well, it has certainly been found naturally" There seems to be some conflicting information which begs the question Mr. Bassebus, in that you said you knew Nada about the item, yet you insist that it was found naturally. So I'm wondering how you know for a fact that it was found naturally? Is there a source that verified the origin?
  7. Kind of resembles a compacted core sample of some type . . .
  8. Well said. And to avoid the fate of Phaedrus in the novel by Robert Pirsig, you can't let the lack of quality, (trash), drive you insane. By learning patience while detecting endless amounts of trash and still having fun doing it, is in its self a quality experience.
  9. 6000 Technology = Greater Sensitivity. 6000 +Solar energy = ( EMI sq.)
  10. My original thoughts were in favor of allowing a discussion of politics to be confined to a separate section. I thought maybe the contestants could fight among themselves and not intrude on the topics and interests of other members. The consensus seems to be that it wouldn't work, and that the animosities and disagreements would spill over into other topics, like it is doing now. So for the record, put me down as a no, although at this point I'm not sure it would make much difference one way or another.
  11. Relax, Bobby. If I was going to dime on you, I would have done so when you posted the photo. New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Regulation. Bow fishing is a legal means of take for game fish species in lakes. It is not a legal means of take in a river. "Bow fishing and spearfishing for game fish are not allowed in any river or stream" ing-Rules-and-Info.pdf /52
  12. Ditch Pickle? Could be. No whining, or accusing, (and it's certainly a nice fish), But! Does the river in the original published photo look like a lake where bow fishing is legal? (In NM it's legal to bow fish in a lake but not legal in a river where the water tends to be shallow and the fish are sitting ducks)
  13. Hi Bear, Although I don't keep track of all the upgrades in comparable models of detectors since I sold my SD2200d almost 20 years ago, there are times that I wish I still had it. Most nugget hunters swear by the upgrades that you mentioned and I like the GPX5000 that I use now, but if you can get a newer model and keep your 2200, I would certainly recommend it. Mac
  14. Actually, (politics aside), Harry Reid appears to be the one who initially got the ball rolling back in 2007 by appropriating 200 million dollars to investigate/study UFO phenomenon before he left office. The investigation apparently was ongoing and numerous sightings were being documented over period of several years, when the information and video was inevitably leaked to the press. Once the cat was out of the bag, congress demanded answers and a 6 month deadline was set to produce both a classified report for congressional review and a non-classified version for public release. Reid stated publicly that he was aware of hundreds and hundreds of documented sightings not just the few that were selected for the reports that were released.
