Don,t worry brother,you ain,t never gonna see me in NYC!:laughing7: Never been,never going!
Toward the latter part of my career I had to go there about every 3 months for a Board meeting. It was not too bad then. But shite hole now. Give me the mountains, woods, and open fields. And no crowds. To each his own. Some people like to be tortured I hear.

He is using tester incorrectly.

Not only that but other natural stones will register as well that are not diamonds.

This is cheapo tester so that also gives more generic results / signal.

Each stone size requires individual setting on these types of testers... thats why they are cheap.

He claims to have found 5-10 grams of gold dust but never shows an actual test of its purity, and .8 carats of tiny diamond chips. The gold dust is likelt from years of jewelers walking around with tiny bits of gold on their clothes from working with gold. The tiny diamonds are from the same people, because the diamonds are so small they likely worked their way through the fabric pockets. In the end he made more money with the video than with the treasure otherwise he wouldn't have given away the secret had it been so lucrative.

I have to wonder though. Back in the beginning of he 21st Century,
I was told Diamonds only sell for $1.00 a Point when re-selling.

He offered to Pop the stones & Give them Back when Buying the Gold.

and I'd also like to know what the real gold would have sold for once refined and cost removed.

when I Find tiny Links that look Gold , they are so small all they are good for is Placing in
coin holders & Labeling Gold Link. No way to Prove it or make it Pay unless ya Got a hundred or more gold links I'm sure :coffee2:

I have a hunch he may have gotten a Offer of $20 for it all as a "Curiosity Purchase" as is From
a Genuine Buyer.

That said, his statement of doing it for Fun Makes Sense.
I would have definitely had fun doing & Speculating :treasurechest:
