    Diamond's worth Dowsing

    After watching the video about an 800 carot Diamond found in the early 1900's, I got very interested! Called the Nipissing diamond. Now with 18 Kimberlite pipes already located, it sure sounds like any areas S of there would be good for searching. The Glacier carried them. I ordered some Olivine and some Pyrope garnet dust for my indicator signals. Diamonds signal/dowse stronger and further than other Elements, such as Gold or Silver, ect. I used my 1/32 carot diamond as a signal once, and located the target 2 miles from the original signal. It ended up being graphite ore. I wonder how far an 800 carot diamond signals. I bet a ways.

    If you want diamond ore samples, go to the Crater of Diamonds state park.

    My Pyrope garnets came. $7.00 for 400 carrots. Plenty enough to signal with. Still waiting on the Olivene. Kimberlite also has a Magnetite. I'll be using Iron, Diamond, Garnets, and Olivene for my Diamond bearing kimberlite signal. Only 500 miles from me, deserves investigation. Dowser

    Aluminum would probably signal, but I shouldn't need to use it. Whatever the most quantity signals furthest. I'm thinking Olivine. Dowser

    These 4 Elements/Minerals and L-rods and power, should be all I need to signal a Diamond bearing kimberlite pipe. Pyrope Garnet, Olivine, Iron, Diamond. Which one is the most abundant in the ore's matrix? Does the most abundant single Element determining the distance a kimberlite pipe can signal?, or does the total of the 4 create a further target signal? Dowser

    My Olivine came. Now I have the 4 signals I'll be using to locate some Diamond bearing kimberlite pipe's. Olivine, Garnet, Diamond, Iron. All I need now is a Gps map of the area, nice weather, and a couple days of power..

    You've got almandine garnets. What you want is pyrope garnets.

    I thought they were pyrope. Thanks, I'll definitely change that.

    Way too dark. Pyropes are pinkish/purple, and much less opaque. I would also bet those garnets are slightly susceptible to a strong magnet. Pyropes aren't. Do a google search for images of both pyrope and almandine, and you'll see the difference. You might also want some ilmenite (titanium iron oxide) in your "source" kit for diamond pipes.

    Here's a couple of pics of pyropes from the Green River Basin in Wyoming. They eroded from kimberlite pipes located on Cedar and/or Sage mountain near the Utah border.Click image for larger version.

    You might also want some chromium diopside, too. That's the bright green gems in the pic.

    Yes, I have the garnets wrong. I'll reorder some. Plus I might get some granular Ilmenite, and possibly some Chromium diopside. I dont think I'll need anything like Geikielite.

    In the end it will be Diamond, Iron, Titanium, Aluminum, and Magnesium. The Elements within the Gems an pipe. All these signals are also in Meteorites. I'll have to Dowse some of my Meteorite Elements that wouldn't be in Kimberlites, to confirm it's not a Meteorite. Maybe Iridium, Nickle, Ytterium.
