Metallic spots. Contamination? Rust?
    #11209400 - 10/08/09 07:09 PM (8 years, 11 days ago)

The jars have probably been ready for a day or two, but getting around to it now, there's little copper-ish gold metallic spots on all of them. They're around the size of a pinhead, some slightly larger, some smaller.

This is frightening. The jars are overdue, and a decision needs to be made fast. Please help!

Have the cakes shrunk enough to allow the top verm layer to fall down between the cake and the glass maybe? Pics?

The cakes have definitely shrunk, but it sure doesn't look like vermiculite. It's shiny and metallic looking. Also, I can't get the camera to take even a halfway decent picture.

This is probably wishful thinking, but could it be early pinning? Golden Teacher is the strain, but I didn't think they were colored like real gold- shiny and metallic... It's the same look as a brand new penny...

Ugh, ugh, UGH. :frown:

You def need pics if you want real answers, and even then they're educated guesses at best.

Vermiculite is essentially the same thing as mica (the shiny stuff in granite). I would imagine that is most likely what you are seeing.
