Quick Newbie Question


Recommended Posts

I know virtually nothing at this point but im intereted and i have a quesiton.

What are these lettered dice that i see people use in the pictures next to their finds? I can understand how they are a know size and therefore useful for size comparison in pictures, but what do the actual letters mean? Type of meteorite? Location found? or used for groups where each is assigned a letter for tracking of whos finds are who?

thank you for your help :)

the die is either 1cm or 1 in. It is usually 1cm. The letters are north, south, east, west, top, bottom.

If you take a picture of the meteorite as found you can set the cube in the picture with the N facing north or the E facing west.

If you take a picture of the meteorite at home you can put the B up for bottom or the T up for top.
