    A Big Yellow Diamond (I wish!) in Western Australia.

    The Garret AT Pro had found me a tiny silver 1952 threepence (an Australian pre decimal coin) and the usual junk. I was sinking into thick, smelly, black mud and was about to move to another area when I got a good signal (Pro Coin Setting). Kneeling in dirty water up to my neck and digging down 20cm (about 8 inches) into what I recognised as a very old layer of dense sticky organic mud, I eventually extracted what at first I thought was a washer, then a toy ring, then as I rubbed the mud off it I thought it was costume jewellery and when I got it home and cleaned it up “WOW! A big yellow diamond set in silver” But, if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is not true. My wife pointed out that it would be unusual to set a stone of that calibre into silver and she was right. Nevertheless it turned out to be a 1920's Silver & Citrine Ring. The composition of the mud & location indicate it may have been lost 80 years ago or more. Although it looks alright, the silver is very corroded & was badly squashed. It is no surprise that the beautiful stone is like new. (Citrine is a hard 7 on MOH's Scale).Rex Woodmore ***Beachcomber-Contractor - Finding Lost Rings
