Default Nori Beach pays off...

Decided to take a ride to Nori beach... my first target was the 13 grams of goodness... tests between 14 and 18 it could be 16k regardless its the real deal...

I didn't even care about hunting anymore to be honest but I continued to hunt the rocks then pulled a barber dime... followed by the Washington quarter.. after that the Buffalo nickel then the rosie with the clad mixed in during the hunt...

Stone is real... I'm pretty sure I know the country its from...

That a keeper for sure! Congrats on a really nice find. So what part of the planet do you think it’s from? The stone looks like a sapphire from what I can make out

You actually named a beach you were at? Sweet finds. It will be hammered before you get back.

That is one big ring. Just noticed where the silver quarter was!!

Yeah a ring with a star sapphire would make the rest of the hunt be like "yeah, whatever..."

LOL AWESOME FIND.

Congrats on the amazing ring!

Exactly... I started my hunt at a different beach and it was a waste of time so I started searching for another spot... Thanks Ice... yes its a small religious item looks like front of a ring... the Excal likes tiny targets or maybe its just me who digs them

Great score.. is that a star sapphire? Last photo looks like it. Might be the camera flash though.

Good luck finding out what it is.. hopefully worth some cash
