    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!!!

      Electric diamond testers are relatively inexpensive. Any reputable jeweler will have one. Most will test a suspect stone for free...

      take what you think is a diamond , make friends with a X-ray Technician and have it X-rayed.. if its a Diamond it will glow or light up... or do a hardness test

      To test if it's a diamond...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. 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!

    Really liked the music. Never give up & have fun looking
    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.

    there are blue diamonds in California.. but its place is a secret and I know its location.. Gold was the main reason the Diamonds were discovered BUT the diamonds were ignored because people were looking for Gold! Also north of Sparks Nevada is Dog Skin Mountain and in its Vicinity you can find Garnet, Opalized Wood, Gold, Silver and have to be extra careful because of Uranium, one spot can make you sterile.. in less than a minute its so concentrated..

    At about the 7-minute mark, your camera spans over a large area of translucent rock that runs horizontally in the frame. Agates and other semi-precious stones from your country are some of the most sought-after in the world. While looking for gold/diamonds, you might be overlooking these semi-precious stones that also have a market value. That rock in your video is very interesting and has a lot of promise, as does the area immediately around or attached to it. I have been a rock hound in the Lake Superior area in the U.S. for 40 years. Some of the other stones found with agates are spectacular (including Jasper, Amethyst, Labradorite, and others) and more than one friend I have makes a living from these beautiful stones. It all comes down to whether you would have the additional interest and time to properly take care of the stones that you would also find while looking for gold and diamonds. Since you were throwing back flakes of gold, that probably answers my question. Just a thought. Take care.

    • Liz Kreate
      Liz Kreate  6 months ago +1

      Thanks very much for your comment. We are avid rock hounds ourselves and spend a lot of time looking for semi-precious stones. Some of my other videos would show you this in more detail. Glad to see that you share the same interest and I'm sure your collection from the past 40 years would be breath taking. Good luck with the hunting and all the best from Australia. Cheers, Liz

    if diamonds are the hardest natural material, then how do they get waterworn?

    • Liz Kreate
      Liz Kreate  6 months ago

      The term "waterworn" can be a bit misleading. The appearance of the diamonds from this area is due to the fact that some diamond crystallizes with curved and rounded faces. Thanks for watching and commenting. Cheers, Liz
