Cleaned up a bunch of bottle caps with my new tool and got rewarded with a ring!
 
Got a couple parks that are just littered with bottle caps all over the ground right now. I guess from events of some sort. So I found online a magnet on a telescoping rod. I was able to get out today and try it out, picked up about 300 bottle caps in 15-20 minutes it was outstanding!
Of course the whole purpose of cleaning up the bottle caps was so I could swing and hear what else people dropped! I found a bit of clad not even 3 dollars worth, some pull tabs and then got a nice loud signal on the etrac. That real high sound that let's you know at least it's a dime, or quarter in there. But I couldn't get a vdi to come up too much junk around it, but it was hitting 46-48 conductivity. Was able to pinpoint and popped this lil beauty out!

I guess it was worth the effort of cleaning all those caps, you were well rewared. Its a beauty. Amazing how some people just dont know how to use a trash can, haha.

Nice way to clean out the bottle caps and great reward.

Were the caps just at the surface or down a bit?

They were just on the surface, but even ones just pushed into the ground would pull out easily.

I don't think it's a diamond, it's a mostly clear stone with maybe a slight bit of pink tint. I haven't tested it or anything but I'm guessing it's clear quartz. If only a nice big diamond huh, I wish!!

Congrats. My last silver was a sterling jewelry, memorial bracelet.
