What Can A 3mm 10k White Gold 4 Prong Earring Stud Tell You?
Well today was beach hunt #7 with the Equinox. There wasn’t a lot of detecting room, with the way the tide was today. Also, a lot of people walking and laying out on the beach. It’s getting crowded out there. I was hoping to keep the streak alive today and I didn’t have to wait very long. First good target was the pink stone 14 K Gold ring. I almost didn’t believe it. That made the rest of the hunt less stressful and more enjoyable, as the gold streak would continue. But I didn’t expect to get too much more, but the finds kept coming. All the time I just kept shaking my head, I can’t believe what Minelab has done!!! 4 gold rings, some silver and a small amount of clad. The broken class ring was found in 2 separate holes about 60 ft apart. The breaking points match up perfectly…they were part of the same ring. The tiny targets were out in full force, as well as the pull tabs too. A small price to pay for the good finds that can come with it. Probably the smallest chain this machine can pick up. Had a hard time locating it once it was out of the hole. I was glad to get out today… a picture-perfect weather day!

Patch Gold = A patch is a hot spot with the right ingredients (cover, clientele, and activity) to allow re-occurring jewelry losses over time. Patch Gold is gold jewelry found in this hot spot.
This is nice piece of Patch Gold from one of my patches. 18k White gold with a very pretty diamond I found a few weeks back.
I went out early this morning. I was expecting a cut as there had been a 3 hour period of high waves during high tide. As it turned out it was more of a 'blow over' than a cut so after about an hour it was time to move. My next beach was less blown over so I settled in for a bit. Finally I found a few quarters and that can mean rings! So it was today. My first ring was the 18. This made me circle, grid and look near for another. About 20 feet away I got the 16. Nice 2 ring morning before 7 AM. I kept hunting and found the cheap tennis bracelet and then I got the 8, the 3rd ring.
I'll give the composition of the ring and you tell me which number goes with it. I'll come .back Thursday Night and tell you the number that goes with the ring
There is a copper ring in the top center. There is a silver .925 ring on the left with a nice little amethyst. There is 18k GP ring with a larger glass or crystal on the right.
But the wrong kind
Had to hunt the beach for a while before the sun and wind broke up 1/4 inch of skim ice next to the shore.
As expected very few signals of any kind but did manage a small kids size 925 silver bracelet wgt 3.5 grams
I really enjoy using the Fisher ID Edge for working the near shore iron and pulling out the small low conductors.

OK , not all by the Equinox but nearly all are .
The Equinox had 3 Silver rings on Saturday last . So far the Nox has had 1 x 18 k Gold with a yellow stone in . 1 Silver Bangle , 1 Silver Chain , 2 x Silver Pendants and 12 x Silver rings out of the 17 i have had this year so far and £141.60p in coinage .
The remaining rings and Chain were with either the ET / 705 or Explorer 11 , they have had much more in coinage overall . The other 2 Gold fell to the Explorer 11.
I should be getting my second Equinox soon , that will complete my Arsenal till a new ET comes out .
After reading and rereading all the comments of the forum, decision for model 600, I think that for my needs, that is enough for me. I arrived yesterday and did a little test at home, since Steve has said many times that he does not have the gold program but that he can do equally well in other programs. This test is in park 2 mode and sensitivity to 12, since I am inside the house
