    Saint Mary - was completely covered in about 1mm of green crust.

    this one was from last Monday - it was a fun hunt - heavy seas eroded a winter beach down south and I found about a 30 ft sq pocket of goodies on the slope about 20m off a large dune cut - nearly all were at same depth approx 12 inches deep, $32 bucks in change including 12 $2 coins, a huge mens ring that I got excited over than deflated when there was no hallmark - looks like stainless but I will test! 925 earing + other junker chains etc - Anyway the pendant came out completely covered in fine green crystally crust- I could not even see the loop at the top - I paid it little due on the beach and only noticed it's potential upon sifting through the days finds later on - it has taken ages to clean it up and I'm still not there - heavy for it's size and I'm guessing 9ct gold because I found a deep mens hallmarked 9ct band in near same green condition a while back -will need a test but I'm confident it is not plated. I also get the feeling it had been buried for a long time for the alloys in the gold to have had time to crust up? HH

    Nice day of hunting the beaches and surf Smoogle. I also
    think that with the crust built up on it, it has been there
    for several days...or three anyway! Well done.

    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.
