I did not expect to find much on this quick evening hunt. My boy was fishing and I thought I would just poke around with my detector. He unfortunately did not catch anything but I did! On top of a small hill I got a solid 48 signal on my AT Pro from all directions and this beauty popped out from 4 inches down. A 14 k gold ring.

I think I can see blue and green in the stone. An opal maybe? Great find and much better than a fish. You can't eat the ring though. Gary
