What Will You Find?

Accidental Discovery

In June 6, 2011, I went to the beach in Ventura California for a quick hunt in the wet sand with my E-TRAC. For an hour I worked a beach cut that give me a few corroded coins, pull tabs and a corroded ring with a tiger eye stone that I first considered as a brass junk ring.

It was until the next day after another wet sand hunt, that I discovered by accident that the cheap ring turned out to be silver ring with a tiger eye stone.

The ring got wet with drops of salt water from the next morning hunt while I was sorting out my finds and I noticed how it reacted with the ring's brown tarnish.

I got really excited that cheap ring was in fact a nice silver ring with a tiger eye stone.
