    • That looks really nice Tom !  Congrats on your new ride  
    • It is a nice piece of ore. Why do anything with it at all? It is a great find and would probably make a nice piece of jewelry if'n you are into that kind of thing. Otherwise I couldn't think of a reason to do a darn thing to it. 
    • Will iron shavings follow it after you stick a neo on it? Being magnetic is one thing. Having magnetism is a completely different property. All magnetite is magnetic but only some displays magnetism.  You might have a gold nugget that will make black sand stand on end when it passes under it.  Wouldn't that be something? 
    • The ones taken from St. Cloud mines were packed in corn starch to support them. Corn starch is used to protect delicate fossils and animal specimens too.  I bet something weird and light like fumed silica could be poured over them to fill the voids. Anyhoo, they usually sift in light material they can vacuum out with a little dental suction tool. They use thixotropic liquids to support the latticework of DNA. If they can do that then I bet there is a high tech way to pack and unpack a sea urchin made of alum powder.
    • Very nice, Bill; it pays to check your magnet, sometimes! fred
