  1. Howdy all, It’s been sometime since a video and hunt, so I thought I’d hit Stewart Valley before all the rains and cold weather come but had high winds, light rain, and even some snow. Ended up with 11 pieces total for 45 gr. A quick and fun hunt. Although they may be thinning out, it was close to 2 hrs before finding the first piece. Happy Hunting and keep looking down. Jayray

  2. Satellite images reveal the destructive power of asteroids and meteorites smashing into the Earth's surface over millions of years in new atlas detailing hundreds of craters carved by extra-terrestrial collisions https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8926681/Satellite-images-craters-reveal-power-asteroids-meteorites-smashing-Earth.html

  3. BE VERY CAREFUL OF WHO YOU ACCUSE HERE ON THESE FORUMS!! One of the main rules here is there is no toleration for attacking/questioning actions of forum staff for doing their job, accusing forum staff of wrong doing when unwarranted will not be tolerated!! If any of our staff edits a post it is because the member violated forum rules, or they were asked to do so by the member. If any of our staff gets out of line I let them know immediately, they are not immune from forum rules, I'm harder on them to follow the rules than I am for regular members. The forum staff here does

  5. "bedrock Bob" is it? I shouldn't be so surprised or so easily disappointed in my fellow humans... But sadly I find myself here all too often.. Here's just one of your issues (as I'm sure there are many more.) You see, from the time you read the title of this very well written question, your narrow mind was so wrapped up in formulating your stifling rebuttal that you lost the ability to comprehend the question.. I used to be married to a woman who had the same problem. She could never hear the very rational and clear things that I was saying because she was lost thinking u

  6. How about Norteno Corrida / Western Swing fusion? These guys are a local band I grew up with. They can really knock out a song.

  7. This is a story from a long time gold prospector, gemstone hunter, and adventurer, Matt Mattson that I have known for close to 25 years, this is his story of his first hog hunt as a young teenager many, many years ago in Florida, it is one of my favorites of his many stories, he also has many videos on many different subjects if you care to check them out on his channel. Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I do every time I hear him tell it!!

  9. I've got no idea what I'm looking at because my computer screen doesn't have the resolution needed to see and 'feel' the details you are describing. If you have looked at the metbul site then you know what it takes for a meteorite to get classified. Once classified it is then is named based upon its location when found. You would be listed as the discoverer. Then it has value. There are quite a few dealers on the web. Take your best pictures and send it to them. If they make you an offer then they think it is real.

  10. Pyroxene is also present in martian meteorites http://www.psrd.hawaii.edu/Nov03/olivine.html the full publication can be viewed here but if the green crystals and the black sub-metallic flakes are actually olivine and pyroxene that is another issue to explore. Im not sure about the variances in sandstone minerals and if anybody knows a species of sandstone that contains these minerals that can be used as a reference for opinion I would appreciate the help greatly!

  11. Mikestang, Thanks for adding to the conversation. I agree it might not be, But then again it could be. And I would like to see the scientific data and references to dispute all of the research I have presented here, and I again respectfully ask that this thread is steeped in genuine curiosity and that we avoid personal attacks and meaningless speculation when the facts are immutable and no matter how much either of us wish it is or isn't a meteorite. I'm willing to accept my bias as being hopeful but I live in reality. So if you are going to refute all of the claims ive made based on what can

  13. Sure you are missing the WHOLE point here, And I mean that with the utmost respect Bedrock bob, Clearly I recognize how long shot of a stretch That I stumbled across some rare meteorite. But YOU are pushing your opinion hee as fact when I can point to scientific data and research that supports what I am saying. And are urging ALL meteorite hunters to broaden their classifications to include A white crust as it may be the only discernable feature that visually seperates itt from our own sandstones. And while I greatly appreciate it that you are contributing to me Fully ID this sandstone I don't

  15. I am not pushing my opinion as fact. I am stating my opinion and backing it up with fact. I am letting you know what I observe and backing those observations up with reasoning. I m giving you my best crack at it and some darn good advice from a perspective of a whole bunch of years experience. That is as good as you re going to do here. Five cents worth and it wont cost you a dime. Otherwise you are going to have to hunt somewhere else for an opinion that suits you better. My advice is to spend your time hunting for a real meteorite rather than someone who will tell you what you wan
