Picked up a gold ring and one of those cool multi-tools from cabellas from the beach today. Ring is a bit odd. It passes the eye test but it is not marked. The acid test is inconclusive - the line partially survives the 10K acid. Also the specific gravity comes up 10.2 which is normally too low for gold. I believe it is low carat - maybe 8K - from Mexico. Only 1.5 grams but I am counting it as gold so I don't get shut out again this season! :LOL:

It's good to know your still getting out bricky.
At least when your out you've got chances of getting the good stuff.
But, stuck at home you've got no chances.
A handful of clad, a multi tool, a wee fat goldfish not fat enough for the plate.
But the star prize for today a low quality gold ring.
Still a gold ring can brighten anyones day irrespective of the carat amount.

Well done bricky.

It's a blessing to be able to get out still at 70. Thank you for saying irrespective instead of irregardless. :LOL:

Congrats on the ring. It has a coppery look to it in the picture, but low carat gold looks coppery because there's a lot of copper in it.
