  3. Thank you for all the compliments, everyone! Yes, Morlock these are Lake Superiors that I found near where I live. Bob - I tumbled a batch a long time ago but ended up having some damage done to the basement due to a small flood. It has been a while but as soon as I get my shop up and running again I will be doing more lapidary work: I am still learning about cutting and faceting.

  4. This isn't sarcasm Mike. It is a blatant attempt to misinform. Im fanning the flames of imagination in hopes of an even greater emotional reaction later on down the line. Rather than the "it's not a meteorite" game that we usually play I'm trying a new twist. I'm playing the "Holy Sh!t That's A Meteorite!" game. I figure a change of pace will be nice. And my hapless victims will love me. It's a win/win situation.

  6. What are you guys talking about? That is obviously a meteorite! Mohamed, you have found a very rare and valuable meteorite. Probably an L8. Maybe an L9. It looks like a carbonific chondroid from the lunar surface! It could even be a new classification science has never seen. You need to take this specimen to an expert and have them look at it. These guys are just jealous that you have found such a stone. A scientist is the only person that can know the importance of such a spectacular find.

  7. محمد, Welcome to the forum. The bad news is that your rock has no characteristics of a meteorite, but all the characteristics of a terrestrial rock. Take a look at your suspected rock(s). If it glistens like a crystal structure (ie: quartz) at any point in the rock, it can’t be a meteorite. If it has layers, it can’t be a meteorite. It’s sedimentary. If it has small gas bubbles (vesticles) in it. It is not a meteorite, but basaltic or sedimentary. If it is moderately magnetic it is NOT a meteorite. If there is a thick crust on it, it can’t be a meteorite. If it has very rough

I don’t post much These days because I don’t get out like I used to and my club’s shop is closed due to covid, but if things ever get back to something resembling normal I’ll Be back to posting up stuff I find and stuff I make.
