  1. There are classes of meteorites more rare than martian meteorites. Although, there is some question as to whether any of the martian meteorites are even from Mars as none have been found to contain zeolites, which are very common in thee martian surface. That is not the point though. The point is that quartz has been found in meteorites and I posted just one example. The eucrite NWA 5218 also has quartz as does NWA 4269, NWA 049, Kapoeta, etc. How much is irrelevant. Your statement was clearly wrong as you clearly stated "If there's quartz it 100% is not a meteorite; quartz does not exist
  2. Look up: Magmatic cristobalite and quartz in the NWA 856 Martian meteorite
  3. Not true. Quartz has been found as a constituent in some meteorites. Here is an example: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1945-5100.2006.tb00495.x/pdf And another example: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3021006/
  4. Look at the size of the Old Woman meteorite. And they never found any smaller pieces of it despite a massive search.
  5. I don't see how ozone can really be similar to chemotherapy unless you take the word chemotherapy, break it down and take it literally. In that case we would be looking at chemical therapy, which would mean even herbs, drinking water or eating would also be chemotherapy by definition. The only other thing I see that ozone has in common with chemotherapy or even radiation therapy for that matter is the fact that all three therapies have a free radical effect on cancer cells. There are some major differences beyond that though. For example, ozone therapy selectively kills cancer cells as wher
  6. I think part of the problem is how would mining claims be made since most of this would be in international waters. Look at the uproar there was when Russia placed a Russian flag on the sea bottom below the Arctic ice cap trying to make claim to the land under the ice.
  7. Hi Dave, Yes, I am familiar with the Gerson diet and protocol. I disagree with a lot of it though. Especially the high amount of juices, which can spike the blood sugar. I also find it contradictory that they say you cannot use spinach because of the oxalic acid but some studies have shown roughly the same oxalic acid content of the chard and beet greens that they recommend juicing. As for the protocol I strongly disagree with the coffee enemas since the caffeine will cause immune suppression by crashing the adrenals, which I have seen happen to people doing these enemas. There are other th
  8. It needs to be noted that you should take small drinks of water frequently and before you get thirsty. If you are feeling thirsty you could already be in the first stages of dehydration. One thing I really disagree with in their statement is the use of rehydration drinks or juices. These should not be used a primary means of fluid since they can actually dehydrate you even more. There are several reasons for this. These drinks contain high amounts of sugar, which is where the problem really lies. If the sugar content exceeds 2-4% in solution this will slow the absorption of the water in to
  9. I agree, limonite comes in various colors and patterns. I have various lumps of limonite in various shades of brown and only one that was orangish. I have several pieces of petrified wood petrified as limonite and have lava flows that have converted to limonite.
  10. I spend a lot of time backpacking, hiking, camping and cross country bicycling alone and have never carried a gun on my trips, including camping in Gold Basin. Unless you are ready and willing to pull the trigger while aiming at someone the gun could just as easily be a detriment. I have only been approached by people twice while camping. Once when I was being harassed by the police in Beatty, Nevada, and I had the police check on me when I was camping in Mexico. They were actually really nice and told me a safer place to camp and then drove by once that night to make sure I was OK.
  11. Great finds. I especially like limonite. It forms in many structures and polishes up really nice.
  12. Marcasite and pyrite are both FeS2. Marcasite and pyrite though have different crystal structures and marcasite has a lower density and and is more brittle.
  13. This should answer your question: http://www.arizonaskiesmeteorites.com/Widmanstatten/ Keep in mind though that iron meteorites can show more than one etch pattern. For example, I have a Toluca that shows two separate etch patterns including plessitic needles. So this makes things a little more complicated since the meteorite should be rather homogenous with its nickel content. Therefore, this brings up the question of how plessitic needles can form within other iron-nickel crystals. Here is some information on the plessitic structures in Toluca. http://www.minersoc.org/pages/Archive-M ...
  14. Looks like a marcasite nodule.
  15. Thought I would share one of the stones I found a few months back. It is a form of chromite commonly referred to as leopard chromite.
