  1. Bassebus Well, I must say I'm surprised. I've been interested in earth sciences in various forms since I was a kid and have never seen anything like this before. Everything about it...the size, shape, coloration led me to think it was tourist curio that might have come from Tijuana...no offense. I'm glad you posted that picture here on the nuggetshooter forum as a lot of us learned something new. Do you have anymore stumpers you can throw at us?😉
  2. It depends on which metal detector you're talking about.. Some are better than others but no detector can pick up all meteorites.
  3. If you really think it's a fossil from Sweden I suggest you contact the proper authorities. https://www.nrm.se/en/forskningochsamlingar/paleobiologi.9000584.html https://www.nrm.se/en/ommuseet/kontakt.7137.html Someone should be able to help.
  4. I don't believe it's a fossil simply because of it's size and shape. It looks like some touristy curio that was crafted in Mexico by the locals.
  5. While it may be made of some type of rock (possibly marble) it seems to be fabricated and something not found naturally.
  6. It's not a meteorite. You should find a good meteorite indentification website like this one to get familiar with them. https://sites.wustl.edu/meteoritesite/identification/
  7. I would say that's snowflake jasper but have no idea where it comes from.
  8. I found this but don't know if it's much help to you. https://rocktumbler.com/blog/fee-mining-and-digging-sites/
  9. Very nice gold. Is a permit required these days for dredging in Arizona? It wasn't when I was dredging during the 90's in the Bradshaw's. Just wondering if things have changed any with regards to regulations.
