  1. Humble Crow: I don't seem to be able to edit my above post, so I'm unable to retract it. I now understand that the igneous matrix with metallic-iron inclusions is merely industrial lead-silver slag, where the metallic iron is merely another waste product of the lead-silver smelting.
  2. DarkSilicate: That's what I'm talking about. Regardless of its origin, this type of material is dead common and not worth the postage to send it across the street, so I hope you won't be too cagey to say where you found it to within half a state. This material is common across Southern Illinois/Indiana (I forget which without looking), Southeastern Ohio, and Southeastern Pennsylvania.
  3. Bill Peters: The Comet Research Group is composed of 63 scientists from 55 universities in 16 countries, which support the YD impact hypothesis, and many fewer scientists have written unfavorable papers against the hypothesis, so it's unfair to call the theory debunked. Even so, I go vastly further than they do in suggesting that anomalous slag-like-material with centimeter-scale metallic-iron inclusions is the igneous crust of hot-classical Kuiper belt objects. The one thing it can't be is ordinary iron furnace slag, because on the surface of our high gravity planet, metallic iron glob
  4. Compare to suggested YD IMPACT COMET CRUST (also with imbedded spherules).
  5. You've got man-made product (silicide) used in the iron industry for scavenging contaminants or for adding precise amounts of alloys. It's neat stuff. It's so dense it feels like a canon ball, with the appearance of chrome when the brittle material is chipped with the sharp blow of a hammer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicide
