  2. Hi

    Found this hunting in the forest and few mor that would love to post in the super near future:)

    Megnatic yes

    Fusion crust. 1mm

    Flow lines, not sure

    Thumbprints, not sure

    Density, 2.9

    Metal inside 

    No streak unless its white,was pushing very hard.

    No holes inside yet

    On line has wholes

    Its missing a peace

    Found where ocean and creek meet

    I only shared it because looked like rocks were forming in a circle 

    I was hoping this was chondrules 



    Thank you for taking the time here are some pics.











  3. Thank you 

    I'm taking advantage of on of your quotes regarding local university mineral tastings.

    I really appreciate the leads that I get from you guys.

    University of Victoria has a astrophysical department. Waiting on them to direct me to the right department to approach. 

    I would like to know if any one is aware of how big of a sample are hunters sending for testing as well as if I would send a find for classification do I have to send the whole rock or a specific weight amount. 


  4. Thank you for the info I did some research I'm sure I'm not providing you guys with the proper information to help make a better judgment 

    This is very unique and has features that I would love some help identifying please

    Yes it looks broken up but looking at it from the right veiw it shows signs of space nugget. 


    The pic on the wood floor is the true dry color of it. Huge thumbprints and flow lines is it possible to be certain type of meteorite. 20200206_190411.jpg

    Flow lines rest of pisa are edited to help better see20200206_220525.png20200206_214123.png

    It looks like a very bright it's harder to get the proper angle to observe for a rookie like me

    Huge circular stamp or thumbprint 


    it has rusted spots that have that shine at an angle 20200206_210508.jpg hoping its chondrules 


    Hope pics are better, 

    Thank you



  5. Hi

    When I look at it it looks close to a bunch of layers with some stuff that settled in between it and with the wear and tear from the ocean the lines on the rock were stronger than the rock material and it makes look like lines.

    The metal is blackish.

    Thank you 

    I'll throw it out .


  6. Hi

    any help identifying would be great 

    Was born today.lo

    3.2 density


    No streak 

    Flow lines dry







     Accumulated dust heavy on one side more than the other



    Free standing.



     Top side could use a wash I hope its the real thing.

    Thank you

  7. Hi

    Here are a few more pics

    Looks like all black lines were going one way and got flipped upside down and all yellow lines going the other way and in most crossing when black and yellow meet yellow goes over the black.



    Bottom right showing a mix of black and green accumulation.


    Deferent shades show interesting elevation 


    It like it was a bunch of blocks that made a circle shape


    Thank you


  8.  Hi

    I found this on the beach and I have not seen anything like it around yet.

    Very green exterior especially when wet with metal inside of it.

    2.9 or so density. No streak color. Magnetic 

    It's made of black, yellow and green rocks.

    Rock is wet



    What got my interest was why the melted lines still had fresh rock on the melt lines that are not melted, and why all the melted colors are concentrated together on the exterior  though the inside is metal.

    Damaged area is 7-9 o'clock 


    Pic of window with water in the sun.

    any help identify in that would be great thank you.

  9. Hi

    Just trying to learn about some rocks in my area just wondering if anyone has an idea of what it might be 

    Found at bottom of creek where rocks ar collected 

    2.87 density 

    Not magnetic 

    The out side looks glazed 

     greenish/gray in color

    With lots of white+gray+greenish squarish rocks.

     Looks like a broken section on it shows the interior

     any help would be great thank you







  10. Hi

     pass on a lot

    though I took some negative pictures To help see a little more in flow direction I think 

    The square looking side is the stamp

    Negative Image_84ceec7c-b705-4e38-bc43-c6a23461b7e1.jpg

    and i have never seen a propeller shaped stamp on a rock that was a meteorite. 


    All beige with rusted like black spots


    When  watered looks like a rusted rock

    I made a better window but still all metal like look with triangle tips, yet square if looking the other way ,looks like there is rocks inside it

    Negative Image_3374691d-f413-4be3-9d09-4e258dedb58e.jpg

    Especially under the thin layer that's on it

    Streak very light brown not much of it.

    It has arrows

  11. Hi

    Thank you, I left the pile alone and took the same trail to the beach as I do every time,

    On the way back yesterday I spotted a 5" black rock

    I tried to dig it out buy cleaning around it and noticed that it was really heavy for its size and had tetras like blocks,took my file and there was a metal like shine,it was 95%  buried in the ground.

    2.91 density give or take 

    Beige in colore when dry and light rusty brown when wet.

    17000 grams

     It's tiger stripes on the sides and flat bottom 

     Nickel test was negative 

    2 or 3  Very small  Pieces of metal that give a different shine and they are as big as a needle tip

    Here are a few pics 

     This one will get the name tiger torch because its striped like a tiger and has things that look like flames.lol 

    not sure how to explain this but it looks like it has a bunch of tattoos that look like flames. and things like a shape of a leaf maybe its fossil 

     It looks like nothing that I have Most of the Hill is dirt and not rocks and it was different than anything I was around it.

     I am really excited to one day have my 1st space nuggets so please tell me if I am over posting pics and I will slow down.









  12.  I have been in the trades for most of my life and few months in hunting for something, I haven't found it yet.lol

    but I would like to thank you all for your experienced opinion I value and appreciate the time,and effort that you all put in.

    Im looking forward to learning more and hope one day I can find  my own space nugget and have the same experience .

  13. I'll get rid of what I have and start hunting fresh.

    It would be awesome  to travel on day and tag along with people who have experience in what to hunt for.

    I have access to small beaches that people dont have access to lots of forests ,slopes and creeks in the same area.

    BC gold hunters are getting lucky now days, I think I'm in the wrong hobby for this area. :)

    thank you all so much for your patiencpatience and I'll do alot more research. 

    none of my rocks have the definition or the texture like the one in your pictures, its beautiful.

  14. Hi

    It's  3.1 density 

     I'll keep this one out of the rock garden and put it aside for further testing in the future.

     It's a 150 to $275 to get the rocks tested and it's good to know  Before we go and test stuff because it could get expensive.

     I know that I am very uneducated when it comes to meteorite ,  I'm sure if I knew how to give you guys the proper information you guys would be able to give me the proper answer, 

    Thank you so much
