Hey, thanks for the responce...I have a dremel and 4 in. grinder left over stuff from when the world was young and I was a welder, full set of diamond cut off blades, a ton of stuff for the dremel, and a tile saw, but I located a small rig with grinders, saw and polisher,may someday anyhow I have to work with what I got. Wire wrapping and jewlery HA! West coast right, and mexico. well .450 karats is $50 now...5 karats to make 1 g. wow, so the arthitis is in my hands and mainly thumb so I am trying to supplement ssi with something. I am not sure about investing in that. I uploaded some pics of the ore, did you see? I had bought some from a guy who has a florite mine close to me and it looked exactly the same as what I have, so I dont know what a fire assay cost maybe $60 If ya'll insist I will, but what is that they put it in a crusible and burn it? I don't know but I dont want to get something toxic. Thanks agail buddy.
