Howdy fellow Space-cases,  :D

 

I was surveying a potentially 1/2 mile wide Impact Crater and when I tried to find the Meteorite that formed it, I came across this:

 

https://imgsafe.org/image/1cac0b72f9

 

It was in the correct area to be the cause of the Impact Crater, so I'm wondering if it could have been the culprit or not? 

 

How do you properly identify a Stony Meteorite?

 

TIA!  :D

 

Namaste,

Ribbit  :)

There's no fusion crust.

 

How do you identify an impact crater? No link to Google Maps this time?

What are the odds of finding an unexplored impact crater? Thousands of people may have surveyed that area before you and looked in the correct area and concluded that this rock wasn't a meteorite.

 

I have visited the meteorite collections in:

Natural History Museum in London http://www.nhm.ac.uk...collection.html

National Museum of Natural History in Paris http://www.mnhn.fr/f...ogie/meteorites

Musée de Minéralogie in Paris http://www.musee.min...its/Meteorites/

Koninklijk Belgisch Instituut voor Natuurwetenschappen in Brussels https://www.naturals...ction_page/2544

 

The rock in the picture doesn't resemble any of the meteorites in those collections.

Try to visite an institution with a collection of meteorites close to where you live. http://www.meteorites.ucla.edu/

As to how I identify a MIC is based on the GEOGRAPHY of THE AREA in question, since the RULE of EROSION is:

 

Erosion gets WORSE the FURTHER DOWNHILL you go, so the LARGE flat areas FORM at the BOTTOM area of the MOUNTAIN WASHES, NOT at the TOP.

 

So when you find an ABNORMALLY LARGE flat area at the TOP of the WASH, the ODDS DICTATE that it's a MIC, until PROVEN OTHERWISE; and to prove it isn't, requires a PHYSICAL VISIT to the location.

 

What are the odds of finding an unexplored MIC?

 

Answer: GREAT!!!!!

 

The reason why is there are just under 200 recognized MIC's in the ENTIRE WORLD, yet there are MORE THAN a THOUSAND Meteorites KNOWN OF. So the SIMPLE MATH of the EQUATION dictates that there are HUNDREDS of MIC's that haven't been FOUND YET.

 

As to your statement that THOUSANDS have visited that spot, where the pictured Rock is, EASILY qualifies as ASSUMPTION, especially since I didn't provide coordinates THIS TIME around, as you NOTED, but I'm no longer providing coordinates to ANYTHING and simply because I don't want COMPETITION!!!!!

Ps: Here's a couple piles of Green California Turquoise I've collected while searching for MIC's:

 

https://imgsafe.org/image/ad4f950aab

 

https://imgsafe.org/image/ad5715d281

 

The 2nd pile has a 200+ POUND boulder of Turquoise in it, which is a State RECORD, and the 1st pile has around 600 pounds of Turquoise in it, as well as a few other worthy Rocks!!!  tongue2.gif

 

And I've also got several other pieces of Turquoise that are around 100 pounds each and the total I've found so far is a little over a TON.  tongue2.gif

I forgot the PRIMARY WAY I use to identify SINGLE or MULTIPLE Meteorite Impacts in the AREA - I look at the Rocks @ my FEET:

You can go WATCH the banner @ this website to LEARN HOW TO READ THE ROCKS @ YOUR FEET:

You don't have to read any lengthy write-up, just WATCH the ROTATING banner and read the LABELS of the Rocks SHOWN!!!!!

 

Namaste,

I took more pics than those but you'll have to wait to get to see the rest.  tongue2.gif

Ps: Here are pics of the 1st of 3 UN-NAMED MIC's I visited TODAY:

The other 2 UN-NAMED MIC's are East-Southeast of that one.

Here's a pic of a Gold Meteorite up-close and personal:

 

https://imgsafe.org/image/2079a41723

 

I used my 10X Jewelers Loop to get that close-up shot and it shows the Virgin Gold square flakes, that were denounced here:

 

http://meteorites.wu...wrongs/m078.htm

 

It's OBVIOUS that Geologists do NOT know about the Virgin Gold CREATION (square flakes) that goes down with Gold Meteorites and the FACT that the Meteorite itself undergoes a MOLECULAR change and all because of the Sonic Alchemy that's going down, but Geologists are NOT Open System Quantum Physicists so they should NOT open their mouths to prove it!!! Especially since it CAN cost them their Degree!!!

 

I'm on my way to weigh several Meteorites. I'll post pics when I get back, then this upcoming week, they're getting cut, so as to shut-up the naysayers!!!

 

Namaste,

Ribbit  :)

I found another one, about the same size as the other but with a different understone to it and since the understone of this one is purple, I've dubbed it the Purple People Eater Stone.  :D

 

https://imgsafe.org/image/e74d292d19

 

I've dubbed the other one the Red Dawn Stone, since it's understone is Red Turquoise.

 

I'll have both sliced open as soon as I can, so as to show the 'screwy' insides.  ;)

 

Namaste,

Ribbit  :)

Nonsense. Most meteorites dont generate craters. I think theres a lot of highly dubious double-talk in this thread.

The OP author was removed from CN by administrators after repeatedly posting fallacious claims.
