    I just found your videos because I just started to Tumble stones and looking for a channel that really explains what to look for when looking for gemstones and other types of rocks. How do can you tell if it is a diamond and not a clear agate? Really glad I found your channel!!!

    I live in Andalucia in spain near Almeria. There's gold but microscopic and no placer that I've found..The geology is perfect and now thinking of looking for gemstones instead. What colour gravel should Iook for. A lot of grey schist and red quartz, some of the streams run red with the iron oxide its so concentrated..any tips would be good..

    So what is panning for?

    Good video. I have panned for gold before and made 4 videos of my experience, but I am no where near experienced. Finding gold while attempting to find diamonds would distract me enough to continue wanting to find gold. Just my two cents on the matter. I do plan on going to the Arkansas Diamond mine this year for my first time ever prospecting for diamonds. Hopefully I find something there. If I do ill have a video on it as well.

    If you're getting depressed by not finding the diamonds, then keep the gold, just to make you feel better.

    A single flake of gold like that is worth almost literally next to nothing that’s why she tossed it...idiots

      You're spot on Randie. We find that if we leave a few flakes for the river gods, they always seem to reward us with a good run of gold that tends to more than pay for our trips. Thanks for watching and have a Happy New Year. Cheers, Liz

      There are quite a few ways to tell Topaz from Diamond. Hardness, luster and crystal structure are some examples but probably my preferred first test is the scratch test. Topaz is 8 moh hardness and diamond being 10 on Moh hardness. Thanks for watching. Cheers, Liz

    You mentioned that gold and diamond is found when you see heavier specific gravity stones in an area. I was wondering, is there any possible chance you could share some of your geological knowledge on tell tale signs on a landscape or dirt area where crystals would be? Ive heard that red dirt is mineral rich and has gold in it, id love a video talking about what as a prospector you look for in a landscape to narrow down where crystals may be. Thanks liz!

    Do you know anything about lake rock diamonds? A person said they weren't 'worth much' but I'd just like to see what they look like.
    It still might be fun making jewelry or things for my doll houses. Just a thought.

    Diamonds can't panned in the traditional way. Panning works by the individual masses of gold, which has bout a atomic number of 197 g/mol which is heavy. Diamonds would be the first ones to wash away with an amu of 12.011.

    "no diamonds...just gold...MEH!" Do you realize people open mines based on those colors? Lady you got your perspective seriously messed up. If you ran a little 6 foot wash plant with that much gold, you'd take an ounce out of that ground pretty damn quickly.

      First thing I do is do a scratch test on sapphire which has a moh hardness of 9. Diamond being 10 moh hardness should scratch the sapphire. Next I use a Refractometer to determine the refraction index. Thanks for watching and wishing you all the very best for the new year. Cheers, Liz
