  1. It was on a chunk of sandstone that was full of piddock shells, and also had some tube worm remains. No idea where it came from. It was in the yard of the house we moved into when I was a tiny child.
  2. I don’t know what this is, exactly, but I know that it’s from some sort of sea creature. I’ve found stones coated in the same stuff.
  3. Looks like olivine basalt to me, but virtually impossible to tell from photos.
  4. Oh, you KNOW them? Well that changes everything! okay, let me turn off the sarcasm and get serious for a minute. I just have one simple question. Are they collecting these from public lands, or private property?
  5. I’ve got one dresser right now that looks like this. I’m at work right now but I’ll take a picture or two when I get home.
  6. The listed price is close to $2 per gram.
  7. Despite the seller’s insistence otherwise, there is nothing special about these agates. They are so common in fact, that they can be purchased for $1 per pound at Quartsite every year. None of this $2 a gram garbage.
  8. Because the more keywords one uses, the more interest and possibly higher prices they get?
  9. I’m pretty sure the person (s) posting these don’t actually think these are meteorites. I’d guess they are just saying they resemble meteorites, even though they don’t really.
  10. I had only seen three of them. I posted two pics from each of the listings. I just found the fourth and here are two pics from that one.
  11. I went and hunted down the page. I think it’s the lighting that makes it look the way it does. There are a couple of pics that aren’t back lit and they look like a fairly typical water worn agate. In fact it looks like agates found in Montana. Nothing unusual in that stone.
  12. I wasn’t suggesting it was jasper. It just looks a lot like jasper I’ve collected from a place called lavic siding. The pic you posted of the very large boulder makes me think you’re on the right track with sedimentary. It sure looks like some sort of conglomerate cemented together by iron bearing sands.
  13. It looks incredibly similar to a jasper we have in California. Can’t say what you’ve got there though.
  14. Had to snap a picture of this. Enjoy.
  15. Can’t tell species, but they all look similar.
  16. Looks like a piece of a sand dollar.
  17. Certainly looks like fossils. I’d say either coral or crinoid pieces. I’m no fossil expert though, so I could be wrong.
  18. Alright Bob, I’ve got another one. Its clearly a pallasite. It’s got a paper thin fusion crust over metallic iron, except for where the elements have gotten to it. I’ve never seen a pallasite with ruby before though, so this must be new. And it’s definitely way too heavy to have been put there by a man.
  19. Shoot. You’re right. So here, I found a meteorite of my very own! It must have been part of the same fall because it looks nearly identical! It’s got giant clasts, impact fractures, fusion crust, and every few hundred feet it’s got three foot wide giant iron clasts! And look how big it is! It stretches for hundreds of feet in multiple directions! I’m going to be a gazillionaire!
  20. I’m not at all afraid that it’s a meteorite, I just know it’s not because I can clearly see what it is.
  21. Okay, here we go. This is one of your pictures. I’ve circled a few things. Circled in red are what I assume you are calling ”glypts.” These are not regmaglypts, but rather impressions of rock or slag used a underlayment beneath pavement. Circled in blue are what I assume you are calling “giant clasts.” These are not clasts, but are bits of rock and slag from the underlayment. This was very clearly the underside of the pavement. The opposite side of your piece is very smooth and uniform, which is exactly what you would expect to see in a piece of pavement. The bits of rock you see on th
