  1. Hey Chris. That GB Pro will be useless on the lakebed. It barely picks up 5-10 grammers on good ground! No problem with the big ones, but how often do you run into those :-)
  2. Jim, which meteorite did you see that wasn't a meteorite?

  7. This was found by Jim on 10/8/11 during the group hunt.
  8. Hi Fred, I didn't mean to upset anyone but after quite a bit of research I was pretty sure it wasn't a meteorite. The area where I found it is near the old bessemer (iron ore) mine, there is also a lot of volcanic rock in the area. I may have put a little much on it when I said I whacked it with a hammer. It had a crack in it already and only took a tap or two and I was able to literally pull it apart with my hands. Sorry if I made it sound like I smashed it with a sledge hammer. Thank you for your input and I'll try to be less destructive in the future. :-)
  9. Well! I think I just discovered an easy way to determine if its hematite. I was reading about hematite and discovered that it is very brittle, so I decided to whack it with a hammer and sure enough it split right in two. No chondrules, just flakey blue/black powdery stuff. Not very scientific but did the job! Thanks for the replies.
  10. Thanks Jason, I looked all over the Internet for pictures of magnetite that looked similar to what I have but was not very successful. I will try to put a window in it tomorrow and scratch test it. I kinda thought it wasn't a meteorite when I found it but the more I keep looking at it I just want to know what is is! Thanks for taking a look.
  11. Just looking for opinions on this one. 427.5 grams and i can't shake it off my magnet. I've had a lot of earth rocks stick to my magnet, but this one is ridiculous. Found on Soggy Dry Lake just east of Lucerne.
  12. Hey frank! That thing is beautiful. I've never seen one that light in color before. Congrats!
  13. Sure, I'm not clear on when I can go meteorite hunting but as soon as I can, I'll let you know.

  14. Just thought I would post a few pics of my first ever finds at the Holbrook Hunt. Thank you, Ruben, Jim and Wendy for a great time!
