    Holes

    Does anyone have a close up example of a drilled hole? The examples I've seen online look countersunk. Are the holes even on both ends? Are there any ridges/grooves within the hole or is it smooth? Any websites detailing how it was done?

    Thanks!

    Depends upon what material was drilled. Here is 3 types of stone drilled. Hope this helps.

    All the pieces I have found drilled is broken at the drill entry. But Tnm gave some nice examples.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    Not sure if this is going to work or not cause I've never tried to load a video. Had to get my wife to use her facebook account.Really It's the only way to see the beauty of this piece/gorget as it will really light up & flash from all the crystals in it.Dad found it many years ago here on the coast.I think it's a type of schist with some type of crystals in it.Don't think they are garnets which are one of the common types but not sure myself what they are.Anyway I know they had a hard time drilling through this piece cause of them.It's really something to look at in the day light under the sun very cool.
    Take Care,
    Pete,

    Yea you can't get it to show right from just a pic. it has to be moved around to catch the light.I tell ya it puts on a show in the sun light.Also pretty cool to see that when they drilled it & ran into those crystals going through that they were so hard the hole had to be kinda drilled around them.

    If you think it will help you, I can show you what the holes should NOT look like. I got burned a while back. If the fake can help someone, I'll feel like I got some money refunded. Let me know if you want to see the holes. I don't want to confuse you at all.
    Their were so many fewer questions when stars were still just the holes to heaven

    How did you find out it was fake? I don't think I'd be able to tell a difference.
