  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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 skills. A metal detector works wonders but takes time to know its intricacies as well as its deficiencies Keep looking down. Jayray
  5. 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
  6. Thanks guys. We need a new strewn field though...or at least a new cold find area. Jayray
  7. Sounds interesting and hope you get the funding. Any thoughts about a gofundme page? Just an idea? Publishing can be brutal. Jayray
  8. Mike, Nice little 'rite. Finding them out there is always a fun hunt. Congrats. Jayray
  9. 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 another small piece. I called Paul over on the radio and guided him to his 1st piece, a small 2 gram chip. After finding that piece he was ready for more! We kept moving in a southern direction and after a couple of hours, I got a nice chunk. It weighed in at 10 grams. Paul made another score of sorts but I'll let him share that find it he chooses too. We ended up leaving right around noon, as it was way too hot, even with a breeze. All in all a good half-day hunting and getting someone new into the hobby. Did I mention, he's ready to go back and find more? Happy Hunting and keep looking down. Jayray
  10. Oh my.... And this is why I love the topic and learning more about the hobby. Good ol' graphite.
  11. Dave, That's where I left those? They are from my buddy, Mr. Don Key and I. Although, we were looking for ghosts of the past at the time.
  12. Doc, I think Joeforthegold was one of the original people to make the Hermit pick that Bill used to sell. Not sure if he still does it or not? I’m sure other will chime in too. Jayray
  13. I’m no expert, but they don’t look right to me. Too many hard edges, and a few vesicles, just doesn’t sit well as a CC, especially from SM. Let’s hope your eye is better than mine. Maybe that’s why I have glasses... Jayray
  14. Nice score Dave! Doesn’t look like it has moved from it’s formed location. Jayray
  15. Trainermick, Here is my website with links to some videos that may assist with Franconia. Finds are still being made, but with effort. Lots of walking, and swinging the detector. Good luck down there. http://jdsnyder.wixsite.com/meteorseeker Jayray
