Finding Gemstones

Recovering Gem Stones Using your Gold Magic® Spiral recovery system, you can recover your heavier gem stones (sapphires, rubies, garnets, emeralds, diamonds).

To recover gem stones, set up your Gold Magic® following the instructions for wet separation of black sand and gold. But tilt your pan to a 30 degree angle. It will take about 2 to 3 minutes before you start to see the gem stones moving up into your center cup. Do not rinse the center cup, as you do to recover gold, this will wash the stones out of the cup. When your cup is full, stop the machine and remove the center cup. Have a dark colored plate or tray available. Pour the contents of the center cup into the tray. Your gem stones will sparkle and you can pick them up with your fingers or with tweezers. Pour your concentrates from your tray into a small container. Continue working your material. When you are all finished run your concentrates again. Be sure you watch your center cup. Usually when you are working material for gem stones you will also find a little gold. If you see gold, rinse your center cup and recover your gold.
