    Meteorite Identification

    Some of the more experienced and successful meteorite hunters have direct access to the meteorite labs at the universities. Sonny is one of those guys.

    Copper Scorpion

    He explained the process to me but I would mess it up. He has some wood pieces where the same thing happened to the wood.
  3. I was over at a friends house checking out his museum quality mineral collection and he showed me this copper encrusted scorpion. I believe it was found decades ago in an Arizona copper mine. Sorry about the poor photo....Took the pic with my cell phone.

    Do not use magnet on meteorites

    Wet/Dry, Here is a picture of a NASA scientist Marc Fries looking for meteorites on a magnate board they made for finding meteorites off the coast of Washington. NASA does use magnates.
  5. E/V Nautilus, U of W, NOAA, NASA and others trying to find meteorites from the March 7, 2018 event off the Washington coast. I hope they are successful! https://www.nautiluslive.org/blog/2018/06/29/meteorite-hunting-olympic-coast-national-marine-sanctuary

    Help Identify please

    Doesn't look like a meteorite. Try posting on the rocks and mineral page and include where it was found. There are some impressive geologist on this forum that will give you some good feed back.
  7. Went to Holbrook last weekend with Dolan Dave and Richard G. We had a great time and we all had success. Although I only found "Holbrook Peas" Dave and Richard found bigger pieces.

    Coworker was able to put it together in a few minutes. Guess I am not a puzzle guy.

    Went out on an adventure with Dolan Dave over the weekend. We ended up at Franconia on Sunday afternoon. Dave found this broken meteorite and left me in charge of trying to put it together. No success thus far.
