Howdy fellow Space-cases,
I was curious if anyone has ever found a Meteorite (Nickel-Iron or Gold) with a Metal Detector before OR if you have a Meteorite and a Metal Detector, will you do a test with them to see if your Metal Detector will pick-up on them?
The reason I'm asking is due to bumping into a dilemma earlier today (Sunday) with a Bounty Hunter brand Metal Detector that did NOT pick-up on either a Nickel-Iron nor Gold Meteorite and it also would NOT pick-up on a Gold Fulgurite (created by Lightning) that I also lucked upon recently, and I was shocked that none would register with the Metal Detector. So I'm wondering if it was the Metal Detector or the Meteorites/Fulgurite that are to blame? Plus, if you run the test on your Metal Detector, tell us the results, as well as what brand of Metal Detector you used and what type(s) and size Meteorite(s) you used.
