    Middle Eastern Ring

    Needed a work-out and needed one bad. Grabbed the CTX and headed out the door at 5:30am to get to the beach by six. Planned on a 7 hr hunt with 4 ½ in the water. The water was warm at 76 deg.

    Hunted the wet sand until I could turn my headlamp off and then headed for the water. Another surf hunter beat me to the surf and had past me earlier hurrying down the beach. Some metal detectorists think MDing is some kind of race…I don’t.

    Met Ron Lord in the water. I see him often and we share MD stories and finds. Speaking of finds, I was hunting just ahead of Ron; I was about 2 ft deep and he was about 5 ft deep (Ron is 5’ something) and I hear him yell “what the heck” or sometime like that. I turned and saw him looking into his water scoop and pulling-out a large horse-shoe crab! He’s using a Nox 800, now, and dang I didn’t know they were THAT sensitive. Must admit – haven’t found one of those, yet. Now you know; Ron has crabs.

    I had a good day in the surf and on dry sand (mostly back beach and pathways). On dry sand, I snagged about 20 coins/hr, an e-cigarette and sunglasses. Not much was happening on low tide wet sand; a few coins, due to it being heavily pounded the evening before.

    The surf yielded a steady flow of quarters, a large SS wedding band (13.7g, 12:16 on CTX), and a presumably silver woman’s Middle Eastern ring (CTX 12-13:44). I assume the ring is silver because of the CTX coordinates of 12-13:44 (I find silver here but not gold). The problem with identifying the metal is that the markings are in a Middle Eastern language. However, it is a beautiful ring with filigree-work on the sides and unidentified symbolism/lettering (?) on the face of the ring.

    It will prove interesting to figure-out the symbols of the face of the ring and the metal mark; another interesting side-line of metal detecting.

    Happy Hunting

    Glad you're having fun!
    The symbol is Hindu Sanskrit for the word "Ohm".
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    The symbol on your ring is an "Om", pronounced like "ohm". Those who practice yoga wear oms in jewelry as well as clothing.

    Thanks, you made my job so much easier.

    FYI for readers: Ohm, Am or Aum is a sacred sound of the universe. Ohm is all encompassing and combines everything in the universe. The vibrations that the Ohm sound (think meditation) creates, are thought to energize the body and help us connect with our Divine selves.

    Now that I know what the symbol means, I think the ring is even cooler...just wish it were my size...not many rings are size 13.
    Thanks again.
