    And more Florida gold & diamonds

    Another gold ring from my last shallow water hunt, this heavy 18K gold band with 7 diamonds is probably an oldie. The ring was completely encased in green coral when found and it took two days soaking in lemon juice to get the coral off.

    Now I really like that ring. An air of rustic class and style all it's own.

    A photo in the green crust would have been cool. Surprised that an 18k would get crusty. A great find though.. HH, Papa

    "A photo in the green crust would have been cool. Surprised that an 18k would get crusty. A great find though.. HH, Papa "
    the actual 18k gold probably did not turn green - they probbaly used 10k to solder those diamond mounts in and that is what initially turned green
    and once it starts to form it just grows from there

    I agree, the 10 K is what probably went green on the ring, have found many encrusted greenies only to turn out to be the real deal... recently had one myself... that was green till I put it in a bath...
