  2. Cool, I used to post a lot here but that was many years ago..... I miss it though..... maybe I'll post more articles/photos soon.
  3. Like I siad it was a great find either way - I know the effort it takes to find such a stone! Please understand too that I meant no disrespect to you nor Laurence. He outdoes me 99% of the time... In this case I think maybe overstated the fusion crust. It's definatley there in remnant sections.
  4. Well, after looking at your latest photos I can make out a little crust - but much more desert patina.
  5. Wow, after so many years it's good to see this article still alive! Hopefully it's helped a few cutters and etchers!
  6. Hi, Contrats again on your space rock! As you'll recall Laurence sent you to me first and so I actually told you it was a meteorite. Laurence only agreed (Honestly he is very good at what he does, but will likely admit I.D. is probably not his strongest suit) why do you think I along with Jim and Wendy Wooddell were there? My point is I don't recall seeing much - IF ANY - crust ...but there could have had some bits of remnant crust. I also think he was mistaken that it had NO patina.... I does. Either way great finds - Keep it up!
  7. Hi Bill, I can't tell you how sorry I am to hear that. Our thoughts and prayers are continually with you and your family. God Bless You

  10. Hi all, Maria Haas is a friend of mine, and Bills and the Treasurer of the IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Assoctiation) which is why she states that this is NOT and IMCA affiliated fundraiser. Just something she and I wanted to do for Bill and his wife. Yes, we've been talking to Bill and know of the goings on here for him and we also know he very much appeciates everything. What she posted is a form letter (of sorts) that is posted on all forums related to meteorite hunting. We're trying to raise cash for him. If you'll notice even many of the items listed are items Bill himself put up. Just trying to help...that's all. Bill is a good friend and needs us right now......
  11. Hi all, and thanks for the kudos on the classification! Slices of this ultra-rare pallasite will go on sale tomorrow or the next day to the general public. Major Universities are already requesting we reserve them a slice. This beautiful/stable pallasite has it all including impeccable provenance! The Sterley pallasite will be sold exclusively by Aerolite Meteorites, LLC, in partnership with Mr. Meteorite (Ruben Garcia). Each specimen has been photographed and cataloged and will be accompanied by the following exclusive documentation: - A full color printed catalog describing the history of the Sterley pallasite, and including photographs of every existing specimen, along with the chemical analyses as performed by Drs. Wasson and Garvie, and other information. - A custom 5 1/2 x 8 1/2-inch color certificate of authenticity, suitable for framing, signed by Ruben Garcia and myself. - A printed color 5 x 7-inch photo of the main mass, prior to cutting. - A color copy of the 1951 Texas Tech letter, confirming the find as a pallasite. - A custom Aerolite Meteorites, LLC specimen identification card. - In addition, the largest slice of Sterley will be accompanied by the original Texas Tech letter and envelope from 1951.
  12. Hey Jim, Yes, you're right... Most people don't realize that there are far more Lunar and Martian classifications than there are pallasite. Think about this, there are only 38 known pallasites including Sterley as opposed to 164 Lunars and 110 Martian meteorites! Below are the only USA pallasites with less TKW than Sterley - so ya, it's rare! Argonia Official 1940 Kansas, USA Pallasite, PMG-an 84 g Cold Bay Official 1921 Alaska, USA Pallasite, PES 320 g El Rancho Grande ** Official 1954 New Mexico, USA Pallasite 40.7 g Jay Bird Springs Official 2003 Georgia, USA Pallasite 292 g Phillips County (pallasite) Official 1935 Colorado, USA Pallasite, PMG-an 1360 g
  13. Hi Steve, When the stone was first found it was NOT classified but only identified by TEXAS TECH as a stony-iron or pallasite. This is the first time it's been classified - and by the best in all of meteoritics -John Wasson (UCLA) and Laurence Garvie (ASU)
