Jafar, Man it looks great there. I am envious. I hear that in some places rock is derived from what was once light colored clay from lake beds, or such, and it makes meteorites stand out and hunting easier. Congratulations on the finds!!! Now I need to find my passport, dig out my credit card, and due a Orbitz trips. Nice photos!!! See Ya, Clifton

Hello Jafar,

Those are some very nice-looking meteorites! How much do they weigh? Do they have a real strong pull to a magnet like an H chondrite, or a soft pull, like an L chondrite? Thanks for posting photos.

Good Hunting, Ben
