  1. That's interesting and beautiful. I think it is curious how the bubbles are so round and not elongated. I don't know lots about tektites, but i thought due to the speed at which they are formed that those bubbles would look a bit different, but what do i know besides it is an awesome looking specimen. Any idea why the color is golden? ht
  2. Right on good to see some nuggets, hope you have fun pulling more from your spot. ht
  3. I think maybe polyester, either way very cozy and warm looking on Christmas morning. I don't see what looks like a chondrite, where did you find your rock, does it attract a magnet?
  4. The difference looks day and night to me, your comparison of the lunar material to your hematite is like gold to lead.
  5. killer Terry good work, what machines did you use and was this all beach or some park hunting? Congrats on a good year of digging! ht
  6. Serpentine man! like 4 meter said, and metamorphic too, like Bob said. ht
  7. That's the right idea, noticing a rock different then the rest, but in general most meteorites will pull towards the magnet, and don't usually find them round. I think you have some native earth rock there my friend. Good luck with your new interest, they are out there. ht
  8. Cool filming man, looks good and you found that corner where the wind blew all the meteorites together, nice going thanks for sharing your good times in Stv. ht
  9. You can tell the dog is not buying it. Hee Haww!
  10. Hey Mitchel, have you asked the Nevada Division of Minerals? If not give a call and they can give you all the info you need. 775 684-7040 in Carson. -ht
  11. Sweet looking bands. nice collecting there. ht
  12. As we speak there is a mining company that has done just about everything wrong they can out here in Nevada, between Eureka and Ely off of hwy.50 First they destroyed miles of historic hwy. 40 by hauling heavy equipment, has anyone ever seen ruts 5 feet deep with dust? They then went to the wrong location to create a pad for drilling they are allowed 1 acre instead they did five acres on sage grouse protected area of course and to top it off they also capped and ruined a well. These oil drillers just destroyed a great hunting area that used to be an old ranch, before moving on. My wife has be
  13. That is one impressive and scary looking monster, and yea i would lean toward tornado instead of micro burst. Those twisters seem to be showing up more in places they used to not, for instance when living in Flagstaff we had one really do some damage west of town and i have seen trees snapped like toothpicks incredible power enough to make it rain nuggets!
  14. That is a most impressive act of nature, makes you wonder about walking on water, can't say i have a rock that has not seen dry land.
  15. So speaking about out in the sticks, this is where my wife and i were last year when we found out the hard way about charging drone batteries while in the field. We were stuck for a couple days, before my buddy could find us, even then thankfully the drone had enough power to fly out to our rescue truck and guide him to us. You can get some great views with the drones, and show you what's around the corner, happy flying everyone.
  16. Good job Terry, thanks for showing us how smooth the Vanquish 540 runs on the beach .
  17. Hi Mila, you have some real fine quality opal there, clay is so cleaver he even understands Chinese, but back to what you are asking about i do not see the pattern you ask about, but maybe i am missing it, from what i know it is rare to find the Chinese pattern beautiful opal none the less.
  18. The only thing scarier than it's looks, is how high you would get if you were to get bit by that critter. Another creative creation Bob, thanks for sharing.
  19. Thanks for sharing, cool video it's awesome to see how fast the scorpion is, i had no idea they caught flys.
  20. Hello fara-kayy, i think what you are seeing is natural weathering. The whole rock looks like it's been moved by water, and i don't recall saying your rock has a water worn fusion crust, but what i was trying to explain is all the white clasts or inclusions are round and with no water on the moon it's hard to say this formed on the moon. Know what i mean, a lunar rock can have some rounded inclusions , but you should see angular pieces as well or else you know it's not a suspect meteorite. If you are just getting into meteorites then you have picked the hardest kind to find, maybe look up know
  21. Nice photos, and i thought i heard he wanted the bracelet back, so it looks like it's real. I just wish we could hear more about how the location linked up with the poem.
