    Buyer Beware

    Hey Bill, It looks like a chunk of hematite and quartz.

    tool suggestions

    Hi Fred, We are doing well. I hope all is good with you and yours. Due to work obligations, we could not be there this Anniversary weekend. None the less, we've been out hunting recently. Ben

    tool suggestions

    Rocky, The fastest tool for making a window in a meteorite, is also the one that never gets dull, and is the cheapest. It is a QEP Sharpening Stone in stock at any Home Depot in the tool section, for $4.97 plus tax. It has a coarse side and a fine side. It makes a window very quickly, and best of all, it doesn't rust, and if you lose it out in the boonies, you're only out five bucks. Check it out. Ben

    Yay or Nay

    Hi Rocky, The stone does not look like a meteorite to me. I don't see any metal blebs, chondrules, regmaglypts, or fusion crust. To be sure, you should make a "window" into the stone with a sharpening stone, diamond file, or sand paper if you're patient. That will give you a good look into the interior. Good Hunting, Ben

    Hello fellow hunters

    Hi Nate, We set a record for Friday here in Phoenix at 118 degrees, so our hunting has been just a tad subdued. I am bringing a sweater to look at ice cream in the frozen foods section of the grocery store, so, anything less than 90 degrees seems cold. I hope all is good with you. Stay hydrated, Ben

    Strange rock or meteorite

    Hi Metworks, The rounded shapes in your fourth photo, don't look like chondrules to me. Chondrules are noticeably spherical. Nice breccia. Ben

    Anyone see the Meteor last night around 9:36?

    Hi Relichunter, Wish I had seen it. Can you post the video for us to watch? Thanks, Ben
  14. Hey Jason, Good eye! Hope to see you at Franconia or Gold Basin when it gets a little cooler. Ben

    suspect meteorite

    Hey Chris, Fred is right, you need to cut, grind or sand deeper into the suspect rock, to get a better look inside. Also, you'll get a better photo, with natural colors if you photograph in sunlight, and don't photograph a specimen when it's wet. give it a shot. Good Hunting, Ben
