I went out last night nugget hunting and got a .08g nugget with the Zed 19.  After it was daylight I went to the dry lake and looked for meteorites.  I've only found one on this lake and it was about 3g.  This one was sitting up nice and pretty and I could see it at a considerable distance.  It is 13g, all fusion and has a wonderful patina on the entire piece.   I'll have to compare it with the other finds on the lake which have been many.

Hi, Mitchel, nice CyDl find!  However, to me it looks like a typical weathered fragment from the location with no fusion crust.  Nice find, tho, congrats!

Mike,

You would know better.  It was found not far from the spring area so I guess over the years it has been above and below the water many thousands of times.

Made a quick pit-stop at Coyote on my way out to a group hunt in Arizona.  I skunked in AZ, but found a little 2.3g chondrite at Coyote.

It was almost dark by the time I got there so I was just poking everything with my magnet and this one hopped on.  During they day you can pick them out by eye.
