Default * How small is this one! *

Poking among the rocks again this afternoon.Scored lots of small items including three toasted threepence's.
But how about this little beauty, 9ct, weighs just 0.6 of a gram .. I'm still counting it though.

Hey Meggie,
Congrats on the gold. I got a small one last week too. Only 1.4 grams of 14k.
But like you said, it still counts!
Is 9 k common down under?

You know what though, over here in the goldfields people go out hunting nuggets which come in at 0.1 of a gram so beach hunters are killing it really.

That little ring is better than approximately 1/3 of my hunts. One out of 3 hunts, I get nothing of any real value. So, GOOD work! Congrats!

Hey, Congrats on the monster gold ring...well, it looks giant compared to my smallest gold ring to date at 0.36g. But gold is gold and a ring is a ring. Probably rang in somewhere around a "9" on the nox (?).
