can you polish your gold nuggets without doing damage and if so can you use products such as brasso ?

Drop your gold nuggets into Nitric acid for a day and they will gleam!
Just make sure you have plenty of lime to naturalize the acid.

Cheers~Chris.

Hi Bigchop
Send a email off to granite 2 He used to sell kits to make jewlery.So he would know what to polish them with. Alibrite cleans them well (use plastic not metal containers).Granite 2 also sells cds on areas to detect in WA.
Cheers Dig
