Trilby Wash Meteorite

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

While playing "Name That Meteorite", Johnno posted a nice pick of a Tribly Wash specimen.

While I was researching the winning answer to naming the meteorite, I came across some information by our very own Bill Southern saying that ASU classified it as an L5-S1-W3.

Now, it's classified as an L4 and I am interesting in hearing about the history around that as I find this stuff really interesting.

Any info??:)

I really do not remember exactly why that would be....? Typo on my part perhaps? It is classified as an L4 though as you said. I know we were all doing allot of amateur guessing before actual classification was finished by Laura Bleacher at ASU....

Oh Man! I thought it was going to be some new scientific break though!:arrowheadsmiley:

Nice find Bill!

Thanks... I think :rasberry:

There have now been several more small specimens found and if any of you guys want to look for more one day I'll point out the strewn field as we now know it....

Want some hard hunting? For a cool meteorite? If a small group of you want to hunt (forum folks only) I'll give ya the .50 tour and may even have time to hunt a bit.

Hi Bill and thanks for the offer. Can you define hard hunting?

I am always up for a good hunt miner[1].gif and really appreciate the offer. And, sounds like you might get a change to give that smoker a real good work out??? Hmmmm???? :)

Hey Bill I'll take you up on the .50 cent tour so count me in. If I find anything I'll gladly give you in-situ pics with coords. Sounds like this could be a lot of fun.

So does this meteorite go beep?

Indeed it does Bob, and a good signal even on a PI

An L4 will probably go zip-zip

Probably a lot like the Gold Basin stuff.

Hi Bill,

I'm definately up for the "fitty sen" tour. I've hunted there before, and would love to do it again. Is Lou still living in one of the cabins? He had found a nice piece of Trilby. It would be great to have a group hunt.

G'Day Everyone

dang, you're killing me. I'm stuck in this god forsaken hole. Yeah, you can laugh, 5 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from a gun fight, 5 minutes from a flight back home. Wish I could get up there.

Trilby Wash was our first purchase and has become a very special part of our collection. Not only from it's aesthetical view but hell, the world famous Bill Southern licked it.

I only have this one specimen and I don't want to mess with it but I really would like a slice, can be really thin. I don't care, even just a fragment exposing the interior.

So I wish all you guys and gals the best of luck out there. Hang on a minute... Ok, I'm right now, just needed to clear a few tears from my eyes, couldn't see the monitor

Oh, hum. I'll just crawl back into my hole and wait to hear the spectacular outcome. Now don't hold back. Bill, you're great to ask everybody on this hunt. The rest is all "what you dont' want to hear" .. nasty words, kicking anything in site because I can't get there. :yuk-yuk:

Go Get Trilby!!!

Cheers

Johnno

Hi John!

I am not much of a collector (my wife doesn't agree, with all the junk I have around the house...I keep telling her it's not junk) but understand about special rocks. I just bought a small stone slice from Anne Black that I've been wanting for the last two years....Allende. I held a nice chunk of it last year in Quartzsite and it's been bugging me ever since. Understand the licking too! It's an Arizona thing!

JohnB darn near had a whole room of folks licking his ..... his .... specimens at his talk in Tucson. I am still laughing about that!happy0193[1].gif
