    Congratulations beekbuster on joining the one oz club... I don't see why not, in fact if anything I much prefer to see "specimen" gold and silver over nuggets as a rule. It's so much more interesting to view and speculate about.

    I hope you don't fiddle too much with it's pristine natural look by giving it too much acid treatment... as we see so often on the forums. Some acid maybe to clean it up a bit and expose a bit more gold. But otherwise I would leave it be.

    You must be really thrilled with that piece. I sure would be too!!!!! WTG

    Jim.
    Time, oh good, good time...where did you go?

    i have only cleaned it with a tooth brush, that is all. i dont want to regret any modification i make to it. there isnt much of it showing, but every little speck has continuity, so i am ecstatic.

    excellent specimens!!

    Way to score some great gold.

    Torch it with MAP gas and shock it in cold water might produce an even more spectacular piece ,or you may end up with lots of little pcs..lol
    Good luck finding some more!!
