Until last week, RNC Minerals had been running a ho-hum nickel operation at the Beta Hunt mine in southwestern Australia. But, when a gold vein was discovered about 1,600 feet underground, the miner decided to do some deeper blasting — and the results were spectacular. These two gold-bearing quartz rocks weigh 210 pounds and 140 pounds, respectively. Find out how much they're worth at our blog... http://bonafinejewelers.thejewelerblog.com/

Music Friday Tribute: In 1964, a 22-year-old Aretha Franklin declared in a song called “One Room Paradise” that she didn’t need to live in a castle or be showered with diamonds and pearls in order to be happy. But, then, halfway through the tune, Franklin reversed gears and added a telling footnote: “Now, if one day he lucks up on a magic pot of gold (Pot of gold) / I wouldn’t mind a little diamond ring or a fur coat for the cold (Oooh!).” The Queen of Soul passed away yesterday at the age of 76.
