  1. Not exactly the usual rock or mineral indentification we're accustomed to seeing but interesting. Anyone want to venture a guess? https://www.newsbreakapp.com/n/0GFRgEPx?s=a3&pd=47032201
  2. I've seen something exactly like this but am having a brain fart trying to remember what it was. But it's not a meteorite.
  3. I once worked for a company that made something called "hydrazine". No doubt it's NOT the same thing that is used by NASA but there's probably a similarity. We used to use eye dropper to put a few drops into the keyholes of the lockers. Once dried, it would fizzle and give off smoke when the key was entered and turned. The friction set the hydrazine off.

    Lunar Meteorite Up For Bid.

    Lots of things for $1.00 opening bid but has very little to do with Neil Armstrong himself other then being in his possession at one time.

    Nope. Only rabble-rousers allowed. Just kidding. I've been to an outing and had a great time.
  11. Thanks for the relating the journey to us. It took almost 70 -80 years from the time it was found until it was classified. That is a really loooong journey...

    Yesterdays finds

    Nice finds. Makes me wonder if there's a potential for even better flourite crystals in that area. We find those crinoid stems in imbedded in limestone matrix which makes it very difficult to extract with damaging them.

    High garde silver!

    Depending on what it is, it may have much more value as as mineral specimen as opposed to the actual metal content.

    High garde silver!

    First of all what makes you think this is high grade silver? Do a streak test first. https://geology.com/minerals/streak-test.shtml Or you can take a small piece if the suspected high grade silver and grind it into a powder with a hammer. Then smear it on a piece of white paper. Note the color.

    Where am I ?

    I think I've seen that mine before but have no idea where it was or the name as it's been years since I've been in that area.

    You're not lazy. The proper excuse is " I'm getting too old for this__"

    First fish of the day

    The best way to smoke trout is to put your mouth over the gills and light the tail fin.
