    response from Beta Analytic- unfortunately, we are unable to accept material unless they are submitted and paid for by a recognized government agency. so....will put it to rest for now. thanks for the entertainment.

    to confirm that they was hot enough to cause fire and that they are in fact "asteroite fall rocks".

    find out in the morning, sure they can date the caliche, confirm the temperature that fused it to the fall rock. thanks. they carbon date bones. googled carbon dating meteorites, they were first to come up. world wide company out of florida. bedtime, don't be dreaming about virgin fall rocks. lucky only one was violated.

    calcium-aluminum-rich inclusions-the oldest known solid constituents within meteorites that are formed within the solar system- are 4.567 billion years old, giving a lower limit for the age of the solar system. so...the virgin magnetized fall rock that Aerolite violated will be sent to the carbon dating lab to have it and the caliche dated. days of our life contin.................ues.

    have ten xray spectrometer analysis on forty fall rocks. what have not done is have them carbon dated. carbon dating lab is closed, they will email me in the morning. my above post is edited to New England lab. one would think that in ten years one would have thought to have them carbon dated. maybe me brains are fried. thanks all

    2013 sent New England a fragment along with a picture as it lay, $25.00, they sent it back, saying it was not a meteorite. suspect they use a XRF gun, that does not quantify elements lighter than titanium. their reply stated no Ni. sent samples to four different universities in 2008, only to have them returned unopened. thanks for the offer, working on a different angle. guess it's true...males think about sex every seven seconds, rest of the time trying to one-up each other, its their nature. will figure something out. thanks to all.

    are these worth getting looked at?

    like seeing in place pictures, took it a step further by marking with an arrow pointing north, fun checking the poles with a compass. harvey nininger recorded one with 190 some poles.

    XRF gun cannot quantify elements lighter than titanium. Na- sodium listed above on asteroite formula is .259 percent average on these fall rocks. article about meteorites stated that more than .6 percent Na would not be a meteorite. MinDat- asteroite, a stellate radiating iron-rich variety of augite. originally described from Nordmark, Filipstad, Varmland, Sweden. China- Jilin Province, (Manchuria; Dongbei region). cleavage- perfect; color- brown green, light brown, dark brown, black. specific gravity- 3.40. diaphaneity- translucent to opague. brittle- conchoidal- very brittle fracture producing small concoidal fragments. mohs hardness- 5.0 to 6.5. luminescence- non fluorescent. luster- vitreous to resinous. streak- greenish grey. habit- columnar to granular, to massive. non- radioactive. non magnetic slightly magnetic. these fall rocks fit all the above.
  13. what you do with the two virgins is a private matter. virgin cold pressed is most expensive brand, but worth it, hasn't been violated.
  14. should add, use two table spoons virgin coconut oil each day, sweat less if at all. started taking it 2014, the eleven bone spurs from cutting bottom both feet on live coral phillipines in 1965 are completely gone. no having to carry a bucket to sit down every 50-100 feet to lesson pain. blood pressure like a twenty year old.
  15. do most my prospecting in the summer east imperial county california and have no problem at all. wear heavy wool socks, wide brim black wool hat, black levis, dark blue long sleeve shirt and black t-shirt. dark colors hold your moister in which cools you. camp four to five days at a time, go though 12-16 gallons water, eat all organic, one can tuna fish. do not use any sun screen. been doing this over forty years. days are longer and no blm nor sheriffs, snowbirds. been out there when it's 130 in the shade, no shade out there. me thinks being to hot is in your mind.
