  1. If you don’t know what a CHOOK is? don’t even try with the word Millbillille I had half a dead Chook for smoko today and it was bloody bonza mate
  2. Thanks for the advice but I don’t have any problems identifying Meteorites. regards Budgie
  3. Yes I’ve msg Ray a couple times now and he’s very interested in my find and says there has been others similar to mine found around the same area. Which surprised me as I’ve never heard about Meteorites around here before. I’m hoping he might have a pic of one of them so I can compare. As I would much rather believe what I see to what I here!
  4. Thanks for that Concretion suggestion Ben, that might be it! Yes I’ll definitely keep hunting because like U2 say ( I still havn’t found what I’m looking for) 😁😁
  5. Hi guys, and thanks for your reply’s! But I didn’t think this was or say anywhere that I thought that this was a meteorite! I was more curious to what it was than what it isn’t. Its not fossil bone i’ve already ruled that one out! And thanks for the concretion suggestion Ben, that seems possible to me? but seems I’m in the wrong section of the forum and should have have been in rocks and minerals?? Sorry but I’ve only just started in this forum and still learning my way. cheers Budgie
  6. Unfortunate these photos are nothing like the clarity of my originals but had to downsize to get them to send
  7. Hi again from Oz I found this rock once again on a flood plain in NSW where I live. There are a very small number of rocks where I fond this so I generally take notice of the ones I see. Most of the rocks are basalt and dark in colour so this one stands out in the crowd! It has all rounded edges that don’t look like water worn to me? It also has obvious cracks on the surface and a very interesting pattern and texture on the crust! It’s about a similar weight to basalt rock, it has a small piece missing so you can see a little better inside the rock, it has pin size black spots consistant all over, and it also has grey grans- spots that are larger than the black ones but not as many! It’s not magnetic. Can anyone help ID my White rock please ?
  8. Morlock now that’s food for thought! Will definitely use that suggestion. Budgie
  9. that’s a very mineralised and therefore extreamly old fossil! Great job with the prep work it looks amazing! I have no idea what it is sorry but like Bedrock Bob, said it shouldn’t be to difficult to ID for those who know because of its shape. in saying that I looked at whale and turtle vertebrae and couldn’t see anything similar so can’t wait to see what it is!
  10. Most of Oz is having its worst drought in living memory! So as a Farmer I say bring on the rain!! And you can drive all over this soul with a good 4wd pickup if it has water laying on it from half inch deep to 4 feet deep! it has very high clay content and holds you up but Just look out when the water is gone and the soil is just tacky because you won’t go more than 40meters before your wheels lock solid
  11. This got my attn this morning!! So couldn’t drive past it without checking it out! It’s a rock out on its own on the black soil plain. But sadly not what I wanted
  12. Thanks Fred And yes I have been in contact with Ray! He said they would need to know exact location but not straight away.
  13. Hi Fred thanks for sharing! Love the flow lines in first pic, what area of Oz did you find it? And no one has been in my area looking for Meteorites and probably have them for door stops and think it’s just a rock lol I do however know of a farmer friend of mine about 15miles away from me, who had a crater appear in one of his fields and dug down with a bulldozer looking for a Meteorite 40 years ago!! He said they found nothing but he still won’t show me the location lol.
  14. Hi Morlock, It was a surface find! I live on 12,000acers of black soil treeless floodplane with only a very small amount of rocks! and thought at first it was a Old Artifact, I knew nothing about Meteorites at the time but knew there was something different about it so kept it. And after looking at it for a couple months realised that it might be a Meteorite? I guarantee you at least 50 people would have walked over this rock and looked at it over the years probably more!! And still after me bringing it to their attn they look at you with total disbelief lol.. it’s almost as if you’re talking about sighting an Alian to them. I totally believe like you, that there is probably more of them and have thought about all sorts of ways to find them!! Even attaching large magnets to farm equipment has crossed my mind! But I also really need to purchase a metal detector to start looking. I’m lucky in that I’ve got access to over 100,000 acres of similar farming country with people who trust me, so who knows what could be out there.. I’ve had a fascination with meteorites after watching a show on tv when I was only about 15 and to hold one in my hand is a very addictive and satisfying feeling! And believe me the hunt isn’t over yet!! I’ve contacted a couple people that are very experienced with meteorites and they agree like us that it looks very much like the real deal but want to know exact location?? Mmm I’m not cool with that at this point. They also want a third of my rock to keep! in order to identify it? I’m not compatible with them hacking it up... as I love it’s shape and don’t want to loose it’s origanl appearance..
