Gold Basin 73.9 grammer


Recommended Posts

On Thursday November 14 I found this 73.9 g meteorite which is my largest find from there. The size is really not that 'great' but the fact it has a smooth surface makes it a bit special.

I have taken the dust off in water and with a soft toothbrush. I'm told that is the only thing you do to them if that much. Should I do more?

Karl,

I have seen many others larger and about the same size but I think that the more unique thing about this one is the larger smooth surface.

I'm certainly very pleased with the size also.

Nice find Mitchel.

The only other thing you might want to do is window it. Karl windowed his Franconia and the iron is clearly visible.

Congratulations!

Aloha Mitchel,

Nice find and it looks like it is part of a fragment so there just may be more pieces in the area to match this one. I would grid the area starting at a 50' square and work may way out from there. Good luck and remember to go "low and slooooooow" for the remainding pieces.

Aloha and stay safe,

Stan aka Kaimi
