Does it have to be a diamond file?

Next time could you use a pointer when showing windows and point out some things in the windows and identify them. Thanks. Over the years i have found lots that look like the second last rock from the end of the video. .

So if I wanted to get one checked out and confirmed I would have to go where? Not to the weather man I hope!

You cannot grind a face in a meteorite in centimeters unless you are in France.

will sanding it decrease the value?

not all meteorites have iron, do they?

wow. so many flaws in your reasoning. not all meteorites are nickel-iron. could be olivine meteorites to even just some other non-ferrous metal.

GOLDGUY Like, Now this is what I'm talking about. This would be a great topic of discussion for the Speaker/Lecture Series at the Abilene Gold & Treasure Expo 6-7 Sept 2014: https://www.goldprospectors.org/Community/Events/Gold-and-Treasure-Shows/EventId/GS14ABILENETX?Category=GS#.U95CDGCzFMs

What if u found a meteorite on a beach would the surface area be different to a one found on land?

found a freshly fallen chondrite or stony meteorite that I witnessed. It landed in my lawn shaking my house. Its the size of a tennis ball only issues I have are its not that heavy like most meteorites, and although it has metal flecks its not that much lighter in the inside.

One of my rocks are rusted but isn't magnetic, wait a minute...

I understand that meteorites fall more or less randomly over the planet. However that does not mean that any area on earth is as good as any other area to find them. In South Australia and Western Australia there is an area known as the Nullabor Plain. It has limestone bedrock, (ie an ancient coral reef) so the ground is relatively light in colour . There are virtually no trees. The area has been geologically inactive for a very long time, so things have not been buried under volcanic ash or covered with other deposits. I am told that when viewed from the air 90% of dark objects on the ground are meteorites. Most of the rest are human artifacts. The one time that I flew over this area was in a commercial jet. That was too high an altitude to pick up much detail. I hope to visit this area again in a private aircraft.

Thanks, pretty interesting, useful stuff.

Meteorites don't have holes you said. But they can have small pin-sized holes that looks like they have been poked by a needle or something

There are plenty of meteorites that fail the magnet test, but are still legit. Look up the meteorite man episode of the podcast Crystal Clear Radio if you'd like more info.

Anyone know of any high quality videos of lunar samples/rocks that have sound?
Написал: Jenni Reyes, 01.01.2014, 06:57
