    Amazes me. Amazes me when I was down in Florida I didn't find it ;(
    Gold along the coast is no different than gold in the mountain streams....it will find it's way to bedrock and around rocks, reefs are the same.

    Most would say the Santo Cristo de San Roman. Here's some good reading -

    "These discoveries get my blood pumping so fast, but simultaneously upset me because now I know that there is less for us to go find lol."

    There should be plenty of similar shallow water gold treasure deposits along the FL E treasure coast.....but like this find, up close to the beach and where the leases are found.

    Here is a pic of Sebastian Inlet I took Saturday looking north, you can see how the jetty erodes the sand to the south.

    This find was made between Wabasso Beach and the Turtle Trail beach access.
    The picture of the area at Sebastian Inlet is, of course, N of Vero Beach proper about 15 miles.
    I hope that helps.

    And the bigger stuff could be straight back out to lines...

    Hello all I was just wondering, I read where the Queen's jewels where in 8 chests ( if what I read is right ) so what I am asking.

    If one was to find all 8 chests say on the beach and in 1 of the chest were the 74 carat ring along with all the others ( i.e. the hear made from 130 matching pearls or the 14 carat pearl ear rings ) how MUCH would YOU say all 8 chests would be worth??

    thanks.

    Just 1 item from the list of the queens jewels would be priceless.You can bet spain or the state of florida will want it.
    Millions of dollars of Spanish treasure await those who would dare brave the eye of the hurricane.

    This one, Pete?
    Well...there were two, I believe...Chris James found them in 1993. Sold for $800,000 or $875,000 depending on who you talk to. Either way...it was a lot.

    List of jewels sent to the Queen aboard the Capitana of Ubilla's Flota, sent by the President of Guadalajara, Mexico.

    A. Two pair of gold earrings (drop earrings); one pair was in 3 parts, the lower part being in the shape of a pineapple with 129 pearls (very small ones); the other pair was smaller and each had 38 small pearls and on one extremity there was a gold amulet. Both pair weighed 3 and 1/16 ounces.
    B. A rosary made of coral the size of chickpeas with the "Our Father" in gold and with three small medals and a small rose also of gold, weighing 3 1/16th ounces.
    C. Two pearls in the shape of an almond, weighing 28 carats; another round pearl, weighing 8 carats; 98 inferior pearls, much smaller in size.
    D. A gold jewel in which it appears to have the image of St. Clara.
    E. Three gold rings, two plain and one with an emerald.
