Shep, did you do a specific gravity test on it? It felt like it had a lot more than I could see.

Shep ... Great find ... congrats! I saw that Steve posted a couple of pics on FB ... the finished 'Cab' he posted is absolutely gorgeous (not a word I usually use but in this case ....) and will make beautiful one of a kind pendant or broach. The Shep magic continues and lives on through the majesty of ElDorado's artistry crafting rocks into jewelry!

Shep's rock has some very white quartz. Steve will make it into something that will be a one of a kind beauty. A very nice find!

Specific gravity tests are sometimes very misleading. The one in the picture was done by three different people and all came up with the same calculation,

A minus amount of gold!
