    Bouse strewn field

    come on does that look like it just landed on earth? I don't know about some of you guys I think I will stick with the guys that go out and find meteorites in the fields without buying them!

    Equinox 6" Coil Beach Hunt

    mn90403, are you hunting the wet in the water or the dry sand. I have a condo in Fla and bought the 800 for the beach. I did pretty good when I first got it not knowing that much about the machine. I will be back in Fla in Oct hunting the 1715 shipwrecks beaches if the conditions are right! Right now it's just too hot to be out looking for gold and meteorites around Vegas but will use it for them when it cools down!
  3. Nice little find Sonny, that will go well with all of your meteorites!
  4. I bought mine off of Bill when they were really hard to get and had him send it to Fla. so I could use it in the water. I can't say enough good things about Bill and the service he gave me. I'm now using it in Vegas until I get back to hunt on the beaches in Fla. So with that said thanks Bill.

    Nice suprise

    That's what you have to do now that it's so hot, the thing that would keep me out of there is all of the storms we have been getting. I've been there when the roads wash out!

    Meteroite in situ

    The Anus Meteorite how much are you asking for it? I have never seen such a beautiful specimen before, where did you find it? Also how much do you want for it?

    Meteroite in situ

    Why don't some of these guys learn what a rock is? A Rock is a rock is a rock is a rock and that is all there is to it. One more rock to add to his collection of rocks! Does anybody else want to tell him it's a Rock?
  9. Here is something that should be interesting to all of you guys! https://nypost.com/2018/07/06/nasa-may-have-found-a-meteorite-at-bottom-of-the-ocean/?utm_source=email_sitebuttons&utm_medium=site buttons&utm_campaign=site buttons
  10. Here is a link that the two of you should look at as soon as I saw your photos I thought dinosaur egg. You didn't say in what state it was found, that could add to some information as to what it is. https://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?p=FoSSIl+DINOSAUR+EGGS+pHOTOS&fr=tightropetb&imgurl=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com%2F-HhjsLBDEJBg%2FUFMeqSJx42I%2FAAAAAAAACgU%2FaQwkyGM67z0%2Fs640%2F040912JSD006.jpg#id=107&iurl=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com%2F-X6IIWQcjnV4%2FUFMer00m15I%2FAAAAAAAACgc%2Fg2j8HahzlPY%2Fs1600%2F040912JSD007.jpg&action=click
  11. There are a lot of good books on meteorites and you can find a lot of photos on the online. But with that said one of the best ways you will ever find for finding out if you did find a meteorite is by doing some of the things that will help you identify your rock as a meteorite. http://www.meteoritemarket.com/metid1.htm

    One big chunk in the backyard

    This is a real meteorite that I found and would be more like what someone would find out here in the West in the desert! This guy came to me in after a two-day hunt to recover the other pieces that I didn't find on the first day with the help of two other expert meteorite hunters! I found two pieces the first day then one of my buddies found one piece and I found the rest of my puzzle. I wish that we could go out and find one in our backyards but that's not going to happen! Most guys that happen to find one spend a lot of time hunting for them. I could go more than a year trying to find a cold find or more! There are five pieces to this meteorite if what you find have holes in it like what you are showing in your photo it's volcanic. We live in one of the most volcanic un-active areas there is nowadays but that wasn't always the case! There are still a bunch of cinder cones around that you can still see in the three states around Las Vegas!

    Is it a right or wrong?

    Typical hemitite/magnitite. No GB there. Sorry. I will add to what Jayray and everyone else said, but add one thing to it. YOU CAN'T FIND A METEORITE IF YOU DON'T GO OUT AND LOOK! It takes time to figure out what are not meteorites so don't give up!
