  1. When looking for chondrules, this is a good example of what they look like. Good luck. Jayray
  2. Definitely not meteoritic. A common terrestrial rock. Keep looking.
  3. Looks like basalt to me. But I’m just one person with an opinion and a bellybutton.
  4. Doesn’t appear to be a meteorite but possibly a piece of obsidian of some type. Keep on looking.
  5. Now, opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one, and IMO, it appears to be a terrestrial rock and not a meteorite. Keep on looking.
  6. Hi there, I’m no expert but it doesn’t appear to be one to me. Especially in the side two, being two-toned. But like I say, “Opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one.” Jayray
  7. Interesting find but doesn’t look meteoritic to me. Too round IMO, and not natural. Just my opinion. And as they say, opinions are like bellybuttons, everyone has one. Keeping looking down. Jason
  8. WillM, Please don't take this the wrong way, but the vast amount of knowledge on this forum is pointing you to finding a meteorite, rather than what you claim to be one, or for that fact a diamond from one. Take it or leave it as for the advice, but if you study a bit more I think you will eventually find one. Here is a site that will definitely help in your endeavors. Study the wrongs so you know when you have 'rite'. http://meteorites.wustl.edu/meteorwrongs/meteorwrongs.htm Jayray
  9. WillM, Wayyyyy back in the day, I got a chance to ride with this guy. He was ahead of time I think and I was only doing basic stuff (Decades, tail whip locomotives, and such). John's foot work was very similar to Chris Day, who rode for Dyno I think. I also got a chance to ride with Dennis McCoy in Missouri at a Half-Pipe Jam in 1989. https://www.v7.bmxnj.com/rememberthis-east-pa-flat-legend-john-huddleston/ However, with determination and a little knowledge I think you'll be able to find a meteorite. Look back in this thread for some of the places to go to try your skill
  10. Great photos, but it is terrestrial conglomerate and not meteoritic. It doesn’t have any characteristics of a meteorite. I’d recommend Richard O’Norton’s book on meteorites. It is an invaluable resource, if you don’t already have it. Keep looking down, Jayray
  11. Thanks guys. We need a new strewn field though...or at least a new cold find area. Jayray
  12. Sounds interesting and hope you get the funding. Any thoughts about a gofundme page? Just an idea? Publishing can be brutal. Jayray
  13. Mike, Nice little 'rite. Finding them out there is always a fun hunt. Congrats. Jayray
  14. Howdy All, Well the desert heat has really been kicking it up a notch, but that didn't slow us down too much. A couple of weeks ago I meet someone who has taken an interest into meteorite hunting and I provided some tips, tricks and even a spot to hunt. With him being new to the meteorite hunting game and the learning curve, I did one better and went with him to a good location and helped him find his 1st meteorite. We started about 8 am and within a half hour of so I scored a little piece. As I kept moving and looking at different parts of the dry lake, we moved south and I spotted
  15. Oh my.... And this is why I love the topic and learning more about the hobby. Good ol' graphite.
