  8. If anyone is looking for aftermarket shafts for running the Commie coils on your Zed, here is a link. Everything is included , like wing nuts and threaded nut thingy and washers. They look identical but without the ML logo, and the ridiculous Minelab stamp tax.. you can't beat $19.00. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000608425797.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.25794c4dFgrzVE&fbclid=IwAR1YO26x7s-D78tMQufcJKdiXKpqD1rhPwqlZ51QPchi0Syi0gK5VZ7s7UU Jen
  9. Very nice find Chris! Not a thing a prospector or geologist would want to lose ~ back in the day. Thinking about the day when he lost it.... he probably would of kept his loupe in a safe and secure pocket.... that said.... He also could of lost his poke along with his loupe!!!! Maybe it deserves another trip for second look in the area Chris?
  10. Even though it’s not gold, I thought you all might enjoy seeing this cool relic I detected the other day. The way it screamed on the GPZ had me convinced it was a big nugget. Unfortunately it wasn’t a multi-ouncer, but luckily it wasn’t trash either. I took a minute for me to realize what I was looking at, but best I can tell it is an old jeweler’s loupe, or a magnifying glass. The leather is all curled up, but the glass lenses inside are intact and have a beautiful patina on them. As for a date, maybe 1920’s??? What do you guys think? Showing before and after cleaning.
  11. A friend and customer that lives here in central AZ stopped by the other day to pick up some gear and show off what he has found recently with his GPZ 7000. The area he detects is not known for many large nuggets, but it has produced hundreds of little pieces. Many of the gullies are full of black sand and hot rocks, making them very noisy. The 7000 is great for these spots, and he is cleaning up all those bits that were missed. We didn’t weigh it, but his handful looked to have been close to an ounce…A big congratulations to this hard working prospector! I always love looking at gold, so than
  12. Wow, thank you guys for all the great input!!! Dick, I have found a similar looking rock up at Gold Basin, but instead of green it was purple. I once heard flourite as a possibility? Gerard, I really appreciate all the photos. I have not heard of asbesotos in the area, but that doesn't mean its not there. I will do some research on nearby historical claims and see what they list as commodities. Chalcedony appears to be a good possibility. Thank you again!
  13. Hi Chris, My First Guess... it looks like low quality (1) Nephrite Jade or (2) Chalcedony . very similar... in many ways... is there Asbestos deposits in the area? I also notice what looked like some hydrothermal stratification (layering) in the left edge of your photo... maybe (3) Agate Moss Agate? All in all... my first guess is probably closest ... The tables below gives you something to work with... to test your sample... All the best. Gerard (1) Nephrite Jade: ======================================== Chemical Formula Neph
  14. Hello Chris, A friend of mine found a similar chunk in the Quartzsite area. Another friend found and slabbed the pictured piece in the Gold Basin area. I too would like to know what kind of rock it is.
