  1. The Black Widow headphones are selling for $135.00 new and have a lifetime warranty. A new Gold Bug 2 plus the 10.5 inch coil and the 6 inch coil is going for $749.00.
  2. That Whink really does the job albeit very slowly.
  3. I know this isn't opal but thought it belongs here since it's a multicolored stone just like opal. It also comes from Australia. It's called rainbow lattice sunstone. https://www.rainbowlattice.com/ https://www.rainbowlattice.com/stone
  4. Lapis will leave a blue streak. Glass will not.
  5. Am selling my almost new Fisher Gold Bug 2 plus two coils..the 6.5" and the 10" plus Black Widow headphones. The 10" coil has a coil cover and is taped in to prevent any dust, small rocks from getting between the coil and the cover. This detector will pick up teeny bits 1/10th the size of a pinhead with under good conditions. The Gold Bug 2 is the best small nugget detector..bar none. $625.00 includes shipping. PayPal. Photos coming in the next couple days.
  6. I think you have tourmaline crystals in feldspar and a little bit of mica.
  7. I'm thinking obsidian just looking at the fracture. Really can't see the different colors.
  8. Randsburg is where I found my first nugget years ago. The best time to hunt is after a good sized storm. Check the gullies first. Good luck.
  9. We all suspected it was a meteorite. The only question now is if it pairs with another fall. Can't wait to the lab results.
  10. Did you read the part in the article where it stated "We have historically had patients bitten in the face". What in the world are they trying to do? Kiss them???

  12. I'm thinking selenite. Can you scratch it with your fingernail?
  13. Post more photos after you get it cleaned up.
  14. Really nice looking specimen. Congrats.
  15. That's great material you worked with. I bet photos don't do justice. How much would sometime like that cost?
  16. My thoughts as well. All I can say is WOW!!! Absolutely great work!!! How long did it take for you to get proficient in knapping?
  17. Great advice but don't waste your time detecting my dig holes as you won't find s....
  18. I'm no expert either. It looks like water worn banded basalt but probably wrong. Just a guess. Rocks are just so hard to indentify compared to minerals.
  19. That caught my eye as well. That caught my eye as well.
  20. I remember seeing an ad in the Smithsonian magazine years ago for a meteorite hunting expedition to the Antarctica. They were asking $25,000.00 per person for everything. I'm curious if they actually signed up enough people to make it worthwhile. This was probably back in the 80's so we'll never know.
