  1. Wow! Thanks Lunk! Just so happens that yesterday a geologist I emailed suggested I do exactly that. Good news!! Shiny specks of iron/nickel are indeed clearly visible! (pics to follow)

  3. Wow. Ok. I shall look into that. Thanks again Valens. 👍
  4. Wow, thanks Lunk. So this should add considerable weight to its confirmation as a meteorite. Fantastic! Soo happy. A dream come true.
  5. Hi Valens, I am considering getting a professional to cut me a slice to reveal its inner beauty. And yes, make some sort of nice frame to display it. This is my first meteorite and really a dream come true. I’m told it’s ‘older than the Earth’! So amazing. Would you guys cir a slice and do the same? Suggestions?

  7. Hi Guys, Found a possible meteorite near Coolgardie (West Australia) last Friday. I'm in the process of getting an authority to either confirm or decline it as a proper meteorite. I've had two agencies reply so far who are quite confident its the real deal and the most likely candidate is a 'H Chondrite'. It was found while I was gold detecting and produced a very strong signal on my Minelab 7000. Depth about 200mm. No other ironstones or hot-rocks in the area. Very quiet ground. Fingers crossed! Anyway, it was gently extracted with my plastic scoop in easy digging soil and came as 5 separate fragments that I managed to make fit together back home once I washed all the soil of them pretty nicely! Went together like a jigsaw! Here's some pictures. Cheers folks. Jim.
