    meteorites, good pizza, expanded consciousness
  1. Mars?

    You definition of "the same" is drastically different than most people.
  2. Check this rock out

    None of them appear to be meteorites to me.
  3. Check this rock out

    There is also no evidence of fusion crust shown in the windowed section, it appears to be a uniform dark color through and through.
  4. Mars?

    Try the geology forum maybe? It does not appear to be a meteorite to me.
  5. Check this rock out

    What makes you think it's a meteorite?
  6. From FB

    It's not a meteorite...
  7. I always like a trip report, finds or no finds. Thanks for taking us along.
  8. Brown stone meteorite ?

    Cut or sand away a portion of the stone to reveal it's interior, such as the below photo.
  9. Brown stone meteorite ?

    File a window please, this one could be a meteorite...
  10. Mars?

    Appears to be a crack.
  11. Brown stone meteorite ?

    Good pictures, but unfortunately not a meteorite.
  12. Shock melt veins

    Cool idea for a post! I have this unclassified NWA slice I scored off ebay: Some great examples of shock melt veins can be found in Chelyabinsk, such as this one from my collection: Some chunks of Chely are pure shock melt, although I don't have any pictures handy.
  13. What mysteries are unlocked behind these doors...
  14. I've been to the lab at UCLA, your dream would be a tech meteorite nerd's dream.
  15. I don't think you can classify meteorites from a book, many differences in meteorite types are only evident by examining empirical data resulting from lab analysis. I do keep this image around, though, as it's interesting to see the differences between petrologic types of ordinary chondrites (and note that none of the data in the table below could be obtained without lab analysis):
