    I found a awesome specimen!!

    At a garage sale in a bag of minerals. For $4.00 bahahaha!!

    It?s about as big around as a nickel. Maybe a half gram in it if I had to guess. Click image for larger version.

    I did the same thing at an estate sale -- but I paid $5.00 bucks
    Maybe I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    Here is a pic of the gold from estate sale for $5.00 bucks.
    It was exciting but not as much as pulling it out of the ground.
    Don't know the history of where it was found.
    Cheers Mike

    Glad you each rescued those pieces. Otherwise they’d likely have been dumped in a flowerbed or some such!
