Purchased some pay dirt from a popular seller on Facebook.
Only powder gold in it, Murphy luck hits again

So this blue bowl just washes away all the other sand and dirt and leaves the heavier gold? Amazing!

Gemstones such as garnet, diamond, some crystals, emeralds and the like (the really hard ones) will also stay in the bowl.
I have to use a 40 mesh secreen on the materials before putting one to four tablespoons into it and then turn it on.

in that last photo, above my finger in upper left corner you can see ultra small bits of gold.
This will catch the tiniest gold flakes, but it is not recommended for flour gold.
