  1. Sean is a awesome dude who has a tremendous amount of experience with meteorites. This is no doubt a weathered NWA meteorite IMO. The streak test only applies to freshly fallen meteorites and only on the fusion crust. A streak test does not apply to this stone, it is too old and weathered along with no fusion crust and the results have no meaningful diagnostic use. All said and done it will not hurt the value at all to cut it in half for the experience as well as to expose the shiny flecks of metal that are likely within.
  2. Seriously though seasoned meteorite hunter is a skewed username to begin with it’s like false advertising in the grocery store, the only thing skewed here it the wrong skew on miss marked items. Show us all the real meteorites you found to accurately represent your username, I’m sorry to even say these things but you need to grow and mature and find actual meteorites before you claim to be a seasoned hunter. That means you need those expensive books probably or you need to take a step back and rethink the content you are posting!!!!
  3. I have a 10” heavy duty saw that’s not refined enough to make fine cuts and also I wasn’t able to locate a blade under .04
  4. Hi wetdry I like the idea, but I already have a wet saw and I need to do fine cuts with minimal waste and I would like to use a more professional saw.
  5. Does anyone have a old 6”or 8” rock saw available to sell?? Thank you, Sincerely Steve
  6. That’s what I like to hear!! Keep them coming, keep searching and I’ll bet you will find one if you stay determined!!! It’s certainly the right look just about!!!
  7. Okay that’s what I was thinking. The black streak indicates magnetite which I expected from the appearance of that coating. To me it does not really appear to be a fusion crust but a coating! The interior appears to be loaded with quarts and really looks a lot like granite for example which meteorites don’t contain. Also the size in relationship to your hand would indicate that the stone is not dense enough to be a meteorite. A meteorite that size should weight approximately double what you posted in the scale picture. Sorry but Unfortunately I have to disagree that this is potentially a mete
  8. Daffy did you streak test on the inside portion or the black portion?
  9. Oh nice !!! Wickenburg is a L6 !!! Those look very nice!!
  10. That looks like a meteorite as well Buck!! Go out and find more. Streak test is really only good for relatively fresh meteorites with black fusion crust so it’s not a good test for your stone. I have meteorites that will leave a grey streak especially my impact melt so don’t let that discourage you at all!!! Nice find, is that about 180-200grams?
  11. I think a quick streak test is warranted for this one. Flip the lid of your toilet tank over exposing the unglazed ceramic surface of the lid. Scratch one part of the black portion of the stone with the black portion directly against the unglazed portion about 4-5 swipes lightly and report the color of the streak left behind or share a photo of the streak. This is a good candidate for this test!
  12. I didn’t here a thing about it. The guy is a regular meteorwrong poster on Facebook. No offense to him but I think maybe it probably turned out false..
  13. Looks like you found yourself a nice little impact melt!! Great job! Hopefully you remember where you found it!!
  14. You’re welcome Mike. Was you previous post a picture or did you leave it blank because it is blank.
