Basaltgooroo Posted April 16, 2007 Share Posted April 16, 2007 Had a good time at franconia this weekend. Met some new people and talked with Robert Verish.... I was talking to him about how i find almost half of my franconia chondrites by eye. Funny thing is, the next day i found a 1 gram chondrite then a 4 gram chondrite then a 51.5 gram chondrite... The 51.5 gram chondrite had eroded out of the side wall of a small gully. I didn't have my GMT since it is in the shop and I was retarded with Del's GP3500 so i decided to go by eye. Payed off. I ended up with 57.1 grams total with 3 stones and 2 irons. My dad is getting good with that Joey coil on the SD2100. He found 23.3 grams of stones the largest being 9.85 grams. He also found a 1.25 gram iron that looks like the letter Y. He also found 4.2 grams of irons.... Here are the pics of my finds I will post pics of my dad's finds tomorrow after school. The one thing that ticked me off was that i couldn't fit the big stone in the container... Oh well.... [Erik] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
