  1. I apologize but that piece is sold. In fact most of this is sold
  2. I recently acquired a 1553 gram Bondoc B-4 Mesosiderite Meteorite Whole Specimen to make a sphere rough for my collection You can check that out in my thread at http://nuggetshooter.ipbhost.com/topic/31171-my-collection/ Now that I have my rough I can sell off the pieces that were cut to make it Mesosiderites are stoney irons and they are one of the rarest classifications to get. This particular meteorite is very old with a lot of weathering so the iron nodules are pretty much gone but it’s still considered a mesosiderite. Fresh slices with visible iron nodules sell for $10 –$15 per gram but due to the condition of this specimen I will offer it at $3 per gram. If you are interested in a piece send an email to bobadebt@ec.rr.com with the following info Nugget Shooters Forum ID Full Name PayPal email address Country Item you want Let me know if you want additional pictures Thanks

  7. I know it's been a while since I last posted but stuff happened. I have been actively searching for specimens to add to my collection but finding affordable material large enough to make a sphere in a classification that I need has been difficult But despite those barriers I am up to 20 meteorite or meteorite related spheres and I just bought a Mesosiderite, which has been very difficult to locate at an affordable price Here is my collection, the individual images are listed in the order they were obtained.

    NWA 8529 Frame Meteorite Display

    A friend used his 3d print to make a frame for the provenance card and I think it make the display look 1000% better
  13. Sikhote Alin is classified as a “Coarsest” iron, that means it has the widest band width of the widmanstatten pattern or the largest clusters of crystals This is the meteorite that destroyed a large part of a Russian forest in 1947 Processed Sikhote Alin is very rare and smaller pieces go for $4-$6 per gram on eBay, and now I know why. This material is very hard to cut and tricky to etch. I decided to process the last 2 large end cuts into smaller pieces that are less expensive Most of these pieces are freshly cut from the saw and will require additional finishing. If you are interested in any piece I can polish and / or etch it prior to your final decision to purchase it. In the case of mutiple cut faces you can request to have any combination of polish and etched surfaces. If interested in anything please send an email to bobadebt@ec.rr.com Please include the following Forum ID Full Name PayPal email Country Item you want Thanks A: 145 Gram Slice – 5 cut faces - $435 B: 35 Gram End Cut – 2 cut faces – $105 C: 43 Gram Slice – 4 cut faces – $129 D: 209 Gram Slice – 2 cut faces – $627 E: 125 Gram Slice – 2 cut faces – $375 F: 70 Gram True End Cut – 1 cut face – $210 Here are images of the entire group 70 Gram End Cut

    Thanks I'm getting ready to process the 2 Sikhote Alin end cuts that have not sold yet This will produce some awesome slices but it will diminish the size of the end cuts (obviously) which is a shame because the size of the widmanstatten pattern of this so large that you need a large surface to appreciate it.

    I'm sending some material to Russia to get made into spheres so I replaced the Bondoc Sphere Rough with the Iron Sikhote Alin that I quickly etched
  20. NWA meteorites are classified specimens from North West Africa that are normally sold by nomadic desert people to meteorite dealers. I recently acquired a 2.4 kilo H-6 whole specimen and processed it into a sphere rough for my collection and a variety of slices and end cuts that I am offering here and on other forums. H-6 Meteorite this large are very rare so this is a great opportunity to add a large example of an H-6 to your collection. This material is freshly cut and it is not polished in the first image. I will polish specimens at the request of any interested buyer. The last 2 images of the 72 gram end cut are polished to give you an idea of what these pieces can look like I am asking $1 – $1.50 per gram plus shipping The gram weight is shown in the second image The top right and bottom left end cuts, and the 2 large center pentagon shaped slices fragmented during cutting and if you are interested in any of these they can be sold in the fragmented condition or I can repair them prior to polishing and that is acceptable to most collectors as long as it is disclosed. If you are interested in any of the listed pieces send an email to bobadebt@ec.rr.com Please include the following Forum ID Full Name PayPal email Good Description of the piece you are interested in (Example - NWA 8529 top right 117 gram and 90 gram end cuts) Thanks
  21. The two end cuts from the top right corner are sold

    I clean my spheres with Bar Keepers Friend and I re-etch the irons occasionally. I also have a polishing/cleaning cloth that use. But honestly I don't know why my collection isn't a mess, I live on the east coast of NC and I handle my sphere all the time.

    I decided to repair one of the 2 pentagon shaped slices that separated during the cutting process I wasn’t to hard to repair and it looks fantastic with a polish.
