  1. Hi Guys, Check out these chondrules from a sample of an UNWA that I got in Tucson this past year. There isn't much to any Ni/Fe in it at all, but very nice chondrules. The white'ish/green one is right at 1.9mm in diameter. Jason ;)
  2. Howdy Gang, Well, today I met up with Dolan Dave and I got a chance to show him Stewart Valley and boy did we have fun eyeballing meteorites! We arrived between 7:30 and 8:00 this morning and let me tell you, the wind was a killer! It must have been blowing 40 MPH. It was all I could do to see the rocks in front of me, but as soon as the sun rose above the mountain, it died down pretty quick. Dave was the first one to score ( we were using magnet canes the whole day), and I followed quickly behind. It seemed as soon as he found one, I'd find one too. By mid morning, Dave was kicking my butt, but that changed in no time short. I headed back to the finds made earlier in the morning and decided to hunt in a northern direction. A few meteorites later, and now almost lunch time, I came across a mini-hit strewn field. This was pretty cool, several pieces, 12 to be exact all laid out in small pattern. The farthermost meteorite was about 10 feet from the main mass. I called Dave over to see the meteorite and we tried our detectors on it to see if it would sound off. They did, but they would have to be pretty big to hear them due to the mineralization of the lake bed. After bagging and tagging, we kept hunting north and the meteorites finally played themselves out. I found two more and then we moved to the other side of the lake. The east side didn't offer anything, so we then moved south. Dave found a couple there, and by this time we were both feeling the effects of an hunting. So we decided to call it quits, Right? Well as we were driving off the lake, Dave spotted a few meteorites right in front of the truck about half way from our exit point. He backed up an found four and I found four more too. All in all a great day hunting, and scoring Stewart Valley meteorites. I haven't collected the weights as of yet maybe in the next day or so. Jason
  3. Howdy Gang, Well I made my 2nd annual trip south to Tucson for the Gem & Mineral show, and was hosted by John B. He is the finest host (and lets not forget Sweet Pea), one could ask for . I was there for a total of four days, but spent my annual income with-in the first 24 hrs. on more meteorites and even got a nice piece of the newest martian fall, Tissant . However, that left me with a little more than two days to spare. I got a chance to see the 13th annual Birthday Bash and the meteorite auction, but really wanted to go metal detecting. I took all my stuff for the hopes of going hunting for some meteorites or even gold and having John show me the ropes. Well, John made a phone call to Russ and Scotty (Studmuffin twins) and off we went. I figured I was going to come away empty handed, it is one of John's patches and he doesn't leave much behind , nonetheless, I'm competing with the twins. We hunted about 4 hours or so and didn't find any meteorites, but managed to snag a "dink-ette" . John and Scotty both got one too, so I felt pretty proud for finding some gold. Russ and Scotty are a great bunch of guys, needless to say, I was worried for my life on the way back, because I didn't know if they had eaten lunch (however, I knew I could probably outrun them if need be...) All-in-all a great trip down south, great show, and a great time spent with friends. Thanks again for the hospitality John, and thanks for not eating me Russ and Scotty... :hahaha: Jason Here is the "dink-ette", 0.20 dwt
  4. Howdy Folks, Met up wit Dolan Dave today and did a quick GB hunt. The wind a bit on the bothersome side, with gusts upwards to 40 mi. at least. Anyone who has owned a GP3500 and has had false signals due to wind can feel my pain today. Every time the wind blows the detector goes and gives a false signal. Plus, it seemed I was getting much more interference than usual, I'm thinking again due to the wind but not sure. Even the radio I had was getting interference. We walked quite a bit and we hit some old areas and try to find some new ones, with not too much luck in the new areas. Overall, we both came home with meteorites, but I'll let Dave mention his. My biggest for this trip was a whopping 370.6 grams. And I found 109 grams in other pieces, for a total of 479.6 grams. Happy Hunting, and until next time, Keep looking down.... Jason
  5. Howdy Gang, Here is another video I put together from the first of the year. What a way to start-off 2012. The kids and I enjoying a nice January dry lake bed hunt in Nevada. http://tinyurl.com/8346jtv Enjoy, and Happy hunting. Jason
  6. Howdy Gang, Well I finally recouped from Franconia and was having some withdraws already, since school starts back up tomorrow. So, I decided to take the kids out to a close dry lake and hunt for some meteorites. We drove right out into the center of the lake bed, got geared up, and headed out. Not more than 10-15 mins. and about 100M from the truck we hit a nice piece. I was happy to say the least, and it made the trip all the worth while. The piece turned out to weigh 3.8grams. Continuing on for the next three hours we found four more pieces. However, the weights went down pretty fast; 1.3, 0.9, 0.3, and 0.2 grams for the rest. My son spotted the last one of the day and we headed back to the truck. We walked about 2 1/2 mi. and my youngest (daughter) was a trooper. The weather was just right, slight breeze, 68 degrees and plenty of sun. All-in-all, we had a great day and lots of fun roaming around a dry lake. Happy Hunting, until next time, Keep Looking Down... Jason
  7. Howdy Gang, Richard Garcia hosted the 1st Annual Franconia Birthday Bash this year and what a great time had by most. The weather was just perfect, and the finds were for the most part plentiful. I arrived at the field around 6 am. with Jim & Wendy, to met up with several other hunters for the occasion. We got the logistics squared away, making sure everyone had a ride and began heading into the field by about 6:30 or 7:00. I had Roy (Digital jedi), Jim (Paleo Jim), and two others with me as we started. I gave a brief "show and tell" and it was off to the races. The goal was to head to Jason's hill or that general vicinity in hopes of everyone finding a meteorite. Well, I kept moving and searching and by about 9:30 or so, lost those that were with me. So, I continued to hunt and it was a long time before I heard anyone say anything about finding a meteorite. I think Jim scored first, then one or two others. I found a small iron, followed by about four more. I continued to hunt for the rest of the morning, not finding anything else. Then I hit an area that had a few nice (small) chondrites there. Most were on the surface, which is always a nice way to find them. I'll let the rest of the group share their stories and thanks again to Richard for a fun and successful hunt. However, Franconia is getting harder to hunt each time and you definitely have to put your time in down there. Here are my finds with a total weigh in at 111.6 gr. Enjoy, and Happy Hunting. Jason
  8. Howdy Folks, During a recent trip Ely, NV., to hunt the Yelland Dry Lake, a group of meteorite hunters decided to explore the Alamo Breccia. Jim & Wendy, Stan, Richard, and myself braved the heat to explore the Alamo Breccia after seeing it on the Meteorite Men to see what they had previewed and explained on T.V. There wasn't much there, nor did we find any fossils. But, the few specimens we did find turned out to be pretty cool. Here is one of my specimens, that I polished up. It is approximately 300 grams or so, and took about 3 hours of polishing. There are some flaws that I noticed after shooting the pics, but nonetheless, it turned out ok. Enjoy, Jason. ;)
