Using a Saruca to find Diamonds, Gold and other precious metals/gems

  • Published on Oct 26, 2013
  • While at the Cotton Wood Trails, I meet a prospector Christopher Russo and he showed me the Saruca and how it worked, this is amazing, I am definitely going to get one of these, you can get one at Miners' Camping and rock shop (870) 285-2722 or go to Please like, share and don't forget to leave a comment!

    Do you find pyrope garnets as they are an indicator of diamonds or are they just the common variety almandine garnets?

    You may even have small diamonds stuck in your mesh, or, even in the other meshes!

    Diamonds are NOT heavy!!! I've worked for diamond exploration companies for over 40 years. You have to find them dry and, if you have access to a WilfleyTable, pass your material over it, never do what you're doing, you'll miss them as they'll float off!!

    why wouldnt you do this over a bucket and then pan the bucket remains.. you lose 100% of your fines and gold.. which is over 50% of all gold

    • Ludmila Kotovski

      You wouldn't lose the gold because they are heavy, but, you would the diamonds as they would definitely float off because of their surface tension being greasy!

  • Rory Bowskill
    Rory Bowskill 5 years ago

    I've just made myself one that fits in my rucksack because the last time I went to the local coast I brought hack literally a handful of garnet rich sand and when I went through it I found a Diamond, not bad for a British beach. Also we have some rather silly laws in England like I'm not allowed to pan for gold in English rivers but would be allowed to use a saruca to look for gemstones in the same place because they haven't heard about them so haven't banned them.

      Thank you for your comment Rory, maybe you will get lucky and find a couple of pickers or nuggets in your Saruca, just make sure you put those in your pocket right away! Good luck with your Saruca and I hope you find some nice Gems and Diamonds!!! IndianaGoldHunter

    Todd, the saruca is down to 20/30 mesh. We use this all the time for garnets and diamond recovery . We often find garnets that won't pass through 12 mesh at this location, and have recovered several garnet in the 10-14 carat weight range and Chris has recovered one that was 106 carat weight here .

    Hey Todd, The screen on the Saruca is pretty small, it should work pretty much anywhere!

    And he is using this in Indiana...isn't most of our material too small for this to work?
