Post by Ash100456 on Mon 09 Jun 2014, 9:37 am

Found this Ironstone covered Nuggie, 4.4g at 5" depth. Near where i got the 23.3g speccie. Out of interest i tried it on the magnet and it sticks fast.

nice Ash, that gold could of been completely encroached in ironstone at one stage and been thrown away. i try to keep a lot of interesting hot rocks i find that sound off.  Very Happy got a lot of rocks in the front yard no sign of gold in any but i just cant leave it out there. may get to smash a few one day.

Hi Ash, have you got any tips for cleaning / polishing up a nugget with bits of ironstone in it and not damaging the ironstone.
looking at using one for a pendant.
Cheers Neil.

G'day Homer08, All i have done is soapy water and a toothbrush, I dont want to damage it.
My other gold i just use Ali-Brite to clean them up and an Ultra sonic cleaner.
Cheers

That nugget would look beautiful tumbled and polished.
The black and yellow would really contrast.

G'day Rege-PA, Yeah that would be the only thing i would do, Am building up a tumbler ( for coin cleaning ) at the moment and might try a few other pieces of gold and ironstone and see how they come out.
