  1. Hello everybody. Thanks for all the replies and thoughts. As suggested, I used my grinder to to expose what lies beneath. Definitely a meteor wrong. Thank you for the education. I love learning new things and will use that if I find something else in the future. Take care, Dave

  2. Excellent job Dave! Based on your simple test this Dirt Monkey with lower than average intelligence can not only tell that your stone is terrestrial, but can also positively ID the mineral. It is magnetite. An terrestrial iron mineral. The streak was hues of grey and not red wasn't it? And you can see in the window the material is sub-metallic (mineral) and not metallic like the iron you find in a meteorite! This is the simple test for mineral iron that you can do if there is any doubt about a rock that is attracted by a magnet. The concept is simple. Iron on earth is always ox

  5. I'm selling this on behalf of a friend of mine. 15.79 grams of buttery yellow gold in quartz. Most of the quartz has been etched away with Whink leaving the gnarly gold intact. I've seen quite a few gold in quartz specimens but nothing quite like this one. He's asking $1000.00 but will consider offers. PayPal or cashiers check. PM if interested. This specimen looks MUCH better in person.

  6. After exhaustive research , which was fun for two winters and then multiple (7/trips no gold) 280 miles away one way . I have come across the mother zone producing these nuggets.To get down to brass tacks,I see you always use the 5" coil with the GM 1000 on shallow ground which is what I used to find these nuggies , And I have learned to use the GM on the full manual 10 setting most often when hunting which is a finesse in itself. now down to the real question? if I use the bigger coil will I get more depth? because where I am hunting is old (1920's dryland wash plant tailings coarse and fines

  9. It is absolutely not a meteorite, just a piece of ironstone, very evident from the picture, there's no need for further testing. Nickel tests are rarely, if ever, used for chondrites; they are primarily for iron meteorite identification.
