Metal Detecting Enthusiast

Gold and Diamonds

First hour metal detecting at Rehoboth Beach, in the lane at low tide, nearing the drainage pipe when I get a high note – a good hit! As I examine my scoop content I see a sparkle and this is what I find …

My heart skipped a beat at first sight. I could see the gold shine through the sand and then I saw the sparkle of a diamond. At this point I hastily wash it off in the surf and then  … I examined it closer and noticed the gold had started to rub off on parts of the ring – it is a fake. A quick examination with the loupe confirmed that the ice is also fake of course … oh well, I guess I am not getting the Excal II just yet.

I should have left it for the next fella.  🙂
