Dont want to hi-jack this post, but here is a macro pic of a 3 gram specie I found about 3 yrs ago.

Only piece of gold  I found in the whole wash. 

Macros really bring out the cool details :)

Hey Guys,

   Fishing8046 - The specimen on the left has some quartz and iron as the host rock.  This is very common for quartz specimens to have iron mineralization mixed with it.  Iron is kind of like the Mother of Gold. 

AuWanderer - Some great looking pieces you have shown.  Did you happen to find or metal detect them? 

Tom - Great Makro shot.  I need to get a new camera with a good Macro lens on it.  What are you using in that nugget shot? 

Hey Guys,

   What I forgot to add was one of the pieces is 35 Grams and the other is like 43 if I remember correctly.

 Just a Sony Nex3 with a Macro lens.

  Its all about how you set it up and take pics. I took a lot of pics to get this one. 

"film" is cheap these days :)

Thank you Tom,

It's not a rye patch nug, all my finds are from the Motherlode region of California. Wish I had the time to drive to Nevada but I don't. One day I will, until then I hunt for California's gold....that one in particular was passed by my hunting partner....I followed behind and got it.... :)
