    Default Cash and Treasure

    I have to say this is one of the best shows on TV on buried treasures.

    http://travel.discovery.com/fansites...t/toolkit.html


    Shows they have done:

    Sunstones
    We're off to Oregon in search of sunstones, the hot gem of choice for jewelers.


    Gold
    Cash and Treasures traveled to Northern California gold country, ready to pan, sluice and dry wash in hopes of striking it rich.


    Sunken Treasure
    We headed to the coast of Key West, Fla. in search of sunken treasure.


    Diamonds
    The crew heads deep in the heart of Arkansas to the only diamond-producing site in the world that is open to the public.


    Meteorites
    Our team shoots out to Kansas to to help uncover two massive meteorites that tip the scales at over 80 lbs. each.


    Aquamarines
    We traveled to the gemstone rich Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to dig for aquamarines.


    Civil War Artifacts
    We travel back in time by unearthing America's history at a campout with Civil War enthusiasts just outside of Fredericksburg, Va.


    Sapphires
    Becky and the crew headed to the beautiful big sky country of Montana to dig for sapphires.


    Truffles
    In Oregon's forests, we joined an excursion to hunt for the most expensive recipe ingredient in the wild truffles.


    Fluorescent Minerals
    The team heads New Jersey to hunt in one of the richest and most diverse mineral deposits in the world which includes 80 fluorescent species.


    Thunder Eggs (Geodes)
    In Deming, N.M. we searched for thunder eggs, or geodes, which look like muddy rocks and can be popped open to reveal an amazing world of valuable crystals.


    Amethyst
    Amethyst, transparent purple quartz, is one of the most important quartz varieties used in jewelry, and we headed to Georgia to hunt for it.


    Megalodon Teeth
    Cash and Treasures is on the hunt for some very valuable teeth from the megalodon, a giant, ancient ancestor of the shark.


    Antique Bottles
    From coast to coast, antique bottles can be found all across America; we headed to New York and Oregon on our hunt.


    Fish Fossils
    Cash and Treasures traveled to Kemmerer, Wyo., to find some of the richest fossil deposits on earth.


    Opals
    The hunt is on for some of the world's most spectacular gems opals and we headed to North America's opal mines to seek them.

    I LOVE this show. I have it set to record on my tivo when it airs. After each show I get on my laptop and find the places this lady goes to and I bookmark the site.
    I am trying to convince my fiance' to go with my on a gem mining vacation
    I would love to take 2 weeks and every 2 or 3 days go to a different state to mine for something different.

    my wife saw that show a few weeks ago and "informed" me that the family will be going to Oregon to hunt for sunstones this summer. She really didnt have to convince me that much, I was all for it when she told me about it.

    .........time to add a DAR ring to my collection.........

    SWeet show! I'm in ORegon, and am heading out this spring after things melt a bit! I had NO IDEA! haha. One thing on the "Spectum Mine" though. Not sure if it will still be 'free' after this show. Sounds like they are building some accomidations and things. I can see them charging a fee. Still totally worth it though. Took the family to the Crater of Diamond Park this summer. Met that old timer that they interviewed! He was at the washing basin right next to us! He was wearing the same clothes even.. Super nice guy. I can't wait to go back to that place! It has a waterpark for kids even! A GREAT family place. I'll keep all posted on our "sunstone" search as well!
