Boba Debt Posted April 22, 2007 Share Posted April 22, 2007 I just finished working on my 4th iron meteorite sphere and I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting it turned out. Originally I just wanted and Ataxite Sphere and there were not a lot of affordable options so I selected Dronino because it had those neat little sulfide inclusions. I know most people display highly polished ataxite slices but I always planned to etch this sphere and once I did I realized it was the right choice, this material has the holographic effect that most octahedrites have and there are some inclusions that retained their mirror polish even after it was etched. I assume these are schreibersite???? Here is a picture of it: And here is a link to my site that has pictures of my entire collection, the "Whole Collection" photo has not been updated but there are individual pictures of most of my spheres. http://home.ec.rr.com/bobadebt/50mil.htm Let me know what you think Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
