This program will be re-aired today at 5:00 PM & 8:00 PM PST on the National Geographic Channel for those of you who missed it yesterday. It was an amazing discovery and was very interesting to watch.

Lost Gold of the Dark Ages? That would be my wedding band. It flew into the fireplace along with a chunk of wood I was tossing into it back in 1979.

If that had been me I would've been diving-in after it. The burns I received would've been less painful than trying to explain it to my wife. :D

That puppy flew right down into the hottest part of the fire, those bright orange caves of hell. I think it was vaporized in seconds. I quickly grabbed the ash shovel and tried to scoop it out, but never found any remains.

The important thing is - did your wife buy that story? :P

The melting point of gold is 1947.52 deg. F. There is little chance your fireplace ever gets anywhere near that hot.

Aluminum melts at 1200 deg. F. Toss a Pepsi can in the fire sometime and watch how long it takes to start to even droop. Even then it will not melt completely down into a solid blob.

If you would have sifted the ashes through a screen after the fire burned out. You probably would have found your ring completely unharmed.

If you know where you buried the ashes... It's probably still there.
