Howdy fellow Space-cases,  :D

 

I found a sweet Meteorite (I think it's a Gold Meteorite) that looks like a Butterfly:

The outer area is copperish-toned and the inner area is blackish, which the picture doesn't show well, but it's absolutely gorgeous in-hand.  :D

 

Namaste,

Ribbit  :p

 

Ps: I also have a few other Meteorites I'll be posting later-on, that include Irons, Golds, 2 that I don't know what metal they are but they are Meteorites, and a Jade Meteorite.  :D

At what location did you find it?

Cajon Pass, California.

 

That's the closest I'll get you to the EXACT location found, since I'm still picking-up the goodies that I'm finding all over the place here but as soon as I'm finished at this location and I move to another, I'll be coughing-up on EXACTLY where I found everything.  ;)

 

Namaste,

Ribbit  :)

Not to worry.  Toooo many fires in Calif. & toooo long of a drive from where I live.
