    Did you sell it or still have it?

    Still have it some place. In a box still from out last move probably.

    Did you check for ionizing radiation?
    You might be picking up dose with it sitting on your bookshelf.
    Don't know if any found have been radioactive but ya never know.

    No, would explain a lot though

    Most are some type of iron I believe. I would guess a 5 pounder to be about the size of a baseball.

    This one was mostly iron. Yes, about the size of a baseball.

    The last one I found was not with the detector and is mostly nickel with some beryl inclusions. We sent that one off to a university to be studied. It may be one of the more rare types as usually there isnt a mix of mineral and nickel. Time will tell.

    ... it was plumbed by Ray Charles and his helper Stevie Wonder
