      #4964725 - 12/13/11 01:38 PM

I got rocks... space rocks

I just put in my order for a small set of very nice meteorites from Galatic Stone. Mike was awesome to work with.

Fuuny thing is, I knew Helder seemed familiar from someplace outside of Facebook, but I couldn't place where.

Now I know, it's Cloudy Nights!

I guess it's a symptom of how much time I have been spending on Facebook, and how little I have been on CN lately.

Helder - I'm gonna hook you up.

My current collection of 3 new meteorites. All these were acquired from http://www.kdmeteorites.com/ (just wanted to drop a shout out, as Dana and Keith were great to deal with).

I went nuts and ordered some more, so hopefully by January the collection will grow. I also have nice samples coming from Mike @ http://www.galactic-stone.com/ those should be coming in tomorrow.

Now, how beautiful are they? Nice acquisitions (books included), Helder. Keep sharing with us.

p.s. Where is your unclassified and the other Canyon Diablo?

Hi Davio,

My son took the other meteorites. He wants them in his room.

The Campo is incredible. It really is beautiful as is the Pallasite. I'll post more as soon as I get them, I am going to order some smaller Riker cases and put each specimen into a Riker case.

Make sure you keep us informed on your new meteorites. It's very inspirational and encouraging to us all.

Dario,

I went crazy and pretty much purchased a whole set with iron slices and stonies. I also got a set of riker boxes to display my samples, a cm cube, dehumidifier and loupe. I also got Mike order in yesterday and they are beautiful. I'll post those after Chistmas.

Those magnets are fun. And they can be used to detect minute quantities of metal.

I'll hook you up the next time around to make up for it.

And let me know how those stabilized specimens stand up to the other irons and pallasites when it comes to oxidation. Every time I see a batch of these go out, I'm curious to see how they stand up. I've sent them to all four corners of the world, and no rust yet.

And my shelf. I currently share the office with my daughter as my in-laws are in, but it will be better set-up when they leave after new years. I am going to move each piece to its own Riker Box, plus the new ones I have on order, it will make a nice display.

Hi Paul,

The 2 books are:

Meteorites by Caroline Smith and Meteorites a journey through space

The Caroline book is a small history of meteorites, its a quick read and gives some basic information. I would tell you to skip it. Its a quick read, but written for high school level.

The Journey book is a much more detailed account and pretty much gives one the basics of meteorites. Its not a college level book, but gives you enough details and some cools facts (like why most Meteorites fall at 4PM), that I would recommend it.

Neither are authoritative works, if some one could recommend one of the those, I would appreciate it.

BTW I get a large package tomorrow. I'll post pictures when I can.

I know this is bad but I ordered labels (thanks for the link Davio) and a request for a Sikhote from the Tucson rock and mineral show . If we get a bonus this year I will get a couple more including a Gebil, large Gold Basin and a Seycham. Otherwise my collection will stall for a while as the hobby budget is mostly spent. What did some one say about a second job????

The collection grows new [Re: csa/montana]
      #5023606 - 01/17/12 08:42 PM Attachment (23 downloads)

Hello,

My name is Helder and I am meteorite collector.

My collection grows, first off, I got 2 new books. Rocks from Space (still reading) and IMO everyone that has an interest in meteorites should have this book.

The second is Falling Stars (by Mike Reynolds) and its a quick read, nice stories, but I finished it in 1 night. If your teenage kid is interested in Meteorites, I recommend it.

I also ordered labels and a 20 and 40X loupe.

I also got the Ikea case to store my collection, in a week or 2 I will get everything in place and move my collection.

So the wife was complaining that meteorites have taken over the office. And I disagree, my in-laws left for Portugal so my Christmas gift came out. Its the IKEA display case that Davio recommended. The astro photos are mine and the scope is a 9.25 on a CGEM. Its not like I have a closet full of telescope and accessories (oh wait I do, never mind).

H.,
The IKEA looks sharp. Great style! I think the max glass shelf weight load is ~13 pounds per shelf.

A couple new ones are coming including: Glorieta siderite, Toluca fragment, Odessa individual, Bassakanou and Gao.

Really wanted a Glorieta Pallasite but they are expensive. I think these will be my last major purchases for a while. We did good at work so I got a bonus, the majority of it went toward my wife (she got 3 rocks also and a piece of metal) but a little bit was for my hobbies.

The Glorieta was found by Ruben Garcia (you can read all about it here ). I purchased this specimen from Ruben (along with several others including the Odesa, Toluca, Seycham, Mundrabilia). While not a Pallasite, it is a really nice looking piece. It looks like the head of Ram.

I have a small (46 gram) Sikhote Alin coming in, this is not a fragment, it has nice regoliths. After that I don't have anything on order.

I was thinking a Franconia Iron (its a H Type and only 1, the Franconia is available) but they are small. Or maybe an Imilac fragment. Maybe a kilo Campo? Maybe a Gujba.....

So many specimens, so little money

Any recommendations?

I have always considered the Sikhote at the top as far as favorites go. I have 5 in mt collection. The biggest is 481 grams with flow lines and" REGMAGLYPTS" in them like yours.
You call it a shrapnel look but I like to refer them as a tortured look also.

NWA 6953 new [Re: Dick Lipke]
      #5181423 - 04/20/12 09:19 AM Attachment (24 downloads)

Got a new one.

Name: NWA 6953

Type: Stony/Iron
Group: Mesosiderite
Structural Classification: ??
Location Found: Morroco
Size: 4 Grams

From Galatic-Stone: "Northwest Africa 6953 is an interesting new mesosiderite whose unique nature is a result of its composition and the collective effects of long-term terrestrial weathering. The metal content in NWA 6953 has experienced dramatic alteration and has almost entirely been replaced with the iron oxyhydroxide goethite. But itís not the oxidation or alteration alone that makes this meteorite fascinating. Studying how the iron oxidation process takes place on Earth in NWA 6953, a predominantly orthopyroxene-rich meteorite, may have huge implications for comparing how iron oxidation may take place in aqueous environments on other alien worlds. More importantly, studying this meteorite can potentially reveal clues as what to look for in discovering other highly terrestrialized meteorites that until now have mostly gone unnoticed."

Tissint new [Re: sealevel]
      #5211038 - 05/07/12 09:05 PM Attachment (17 downloads)

My first piece of another planet. I am really drooling but I had in my hand a piece of Mars. The improbability of this rock being blown off the planet and landing on Earth is incredible. Considering that it was observed and fresh adds to the uniqueness of it all. I wish Eric (Meteorite Market) had a larger piece.

NWA 6953 new [Re: hfjacinto]
      #5222129 - 05/14/12 03:21 PM Attachment (66 downloads)

Name: NWA 6953

Type: Stony/Iron
Group: Mesosiderite
Structural Classification: ??
Location Found: Morroco
Size: 5.1 Grams

From Galatic-Stone: "Northwest Africa 6953 is an interesting new mesosiderite whose unique nature is a result of its composition and the collective effects of long-term terrestrial weathering. The metal content in NWA 6953 has experienced dramatic alteration and has almost entirely been replaced with the iron oxyhydroxide goethite. But itís not the oxidation or alteration alone that makes this meteorite fascinating. Studying how the iron oxidation process takes place on Earth in NWA 6953, a predominantly orthopyroxene-rich meteorite, may have huge implications for comparing how iron oxidation may take place in aqueous environments on other alien worlds. More importantly, studying this meteorite can potentially reveal clues as what to look for in discovering other highly terrestrialized meteorites that until now have mostly gone unnoticed."

Thanks Carol,

I actually sold a couple of eyepieces, telescopes and other gear that I wasn't using to get a lot of specimens. I also traded several with Mike for different specimens, and I used the bulk of my hobby budget to get what I have now. Now if the weather would clear up, lately all I can do is solar imaging.

Helder:

I just loved looking through your thread and your collection. Your enthusiasm for meteorites is very much like mine. I started with one and now have so many. I kept saying I need to stop and couldn't. And my specimens got more and more expensive. I had no idea they would be so beautiful. Anyway, thanks for keeping this thread going. It is a real pleasure to read it and see your collection. So amazing!

Lucky you. I suppose I am lucky too. We don't spend much money except on things we really want. We both spend very wisely and don't waste a cent.

At first, she saw me looking at meteorites online and she said don't buy some rocks. She was nice about it though. But once I told her how much they meant to me and how amazing they are, she gave me permission. She knows I make wise choices with my money.

I don't think she has any idea how much I have spent though and I can only think that at least they will go up in price. I don't plan on selling any anytime soon but if I had to I think I could get most of my money back and more and that makes me feel like I haven't really spent the money . Rationalizing my addiction, I know.

With meteorites and all my recent expensive astronomy equipment I think she knows it is a lot but I haven't given her an amount and when she asks we speak in terms of trips to Europe. We sent our son to Europe with a music group and that cost a lot. So my telescope costs over 2 trips to Europe. Wow!

Unfortunately my wife isn't too interested in rocks or the stars and sun but my 13 year old daughter is and I show her all my new rocks. She likes them and asks a lot of questions about them. I can't wait to show her the next one!

Seeing this thread made me spend some more money. I have several samples in Riker boxes but it was time to put the on display so I ordered some more display stands, new labels. I will be moving the sliced stonies out of boxes. I also got some free "meteorite jewelry" from a meteorite hunter as I'm a good customer. That was really nice. Need to get those in a presentation case. New pictures coming soon I promise. And new samples also

This is a beautiful end piece. I think everyone should get a piece of Gujba, the metal chondrules are incredible. Its very expensive though.

Very nice sample. So many Campos today are black. I prefer the ones that look a more natural brown.

I think the Campos that are distinctly black were probably treated with a rust inhibiting coating. Even ordinary lacquer will darken up a natural brown one. If yours starts to acquire new rust, or starts to flake, or begins to exude little yellow-green globules, you should treat it according to one of the previously described processes. The appearance will be essentially unchanged, but the chlorine that's accelerating the rusting will be removed. Your piece does have a nice shape with great regmaglypts. Here's a 12 kg individual that used to be a prolific ruster, with copious amounts of yellowish liquid constantly forming on the surface, and flakes of rust a constant source of annoyance. It's been about five years since treatment, and there's never been a reoccurance of new rust or 'lawrencite disease'.

Is the seller of the broken one giving you another or did you just buy another.

Nice piece. Is it coated with something. Admires can rust quickly from my experience.

I was told it was "treated" I have an admire nugget that's 3 years old and it has no rust and I don't keep it in oil or a case.
