I found this stone on the first of 2 days of hunting with my son and some friends (Including Twink Monrad). It weighs 8.17g and is 2.5 cm x 1.5 cm. In all, my son and I recovered 5 pieces, the largest being 27.8 grams.

Thanks everybody, this one my dad found, but I always take the pics for him. It's actually on the cover of his webpage. When I get a chance, I'll submit one of the others. I got a 27 grammer that day (I was showing around the IMCA dinner last night - excellent venue!). See you in Holbrook Ben ;-)
