What is a Honker?

Here at Sheffield Mine we have three classifications of  Rubies:

Squeaker, Honker, and Super Honker.
During the day we love to make a big deal out of the stones found and those who found them. So to make it a Squeaker it has to weigh in at 15 carats or larger but once it hits the 30 carat mark it becomes a Honker and after that at 100 carats we deem it a Super Honker and announce it as well as the person that found it over the the loud speakers with our special horns. If you end up bringing us a Honker or Super Honker you get to join our Honker club and are awarded with a few extra goodies. Ckeck out the Honker Club page to see more.
