Well after all the post i have done i know one thing for sure, meteorites are  extremely hard to find and are extremely rare. But by wrestling  through all the meteorwrongs i learn allot what not to look for and know what a real meteorite must have. I apreciate all the comments and have learned allot.

And most of us support your enthusiasm!

Hello everyone, i want to stay on topic of lunar meteorite because i think i might have found something good. But first i have some questions. Question number 1: Has Yamato 86032 been broken and crushed by the ice like in a glacier? see photo 1. Question 2: And what would a lunar feldspathic meteorite look like when it's found in europe but it has been crushed by a glacier in ancient times. Would it contain glacial fractures like chatter marks see photo 2.

Your image had convinced me for a second that you actually found something of significance but realized that this image is one you are apparently using for comparison and not an actual find by yourself, correct?

Yes that is correct, please read my questions. because  i might have found a lunar meteorite that has been damaged and crushed by glacial movement in the european ice age. But i still contain lunar carateristiks llike  the swirl melt paterns found in lunars.

well it can definitely pay off, because i now got a buyer who wants to buy a rock from me and he is pretty sure it is a meteorite. He has even asked an expert. This is the rock he want to buy. and  he  is prepaired to pay up to 2500 euro's.

If a buyer is naive enough to pay that kind of money without authentication and analysis by a reputable institution, he is a fool. Or, he is scamming you.

So you admit to trying to sell these rocks as meteorites while using the Cloudynights forum to dig up interests?

hold on one minute don´t jump to conclusions to quickly. The rock from your last reaction i posted online with the title 'mysterious rock' and nothing else the the buyer jumped to the meteorite conclusion himself. and if ipost i post unuasly as possible meteorite or meteorite with a ???. But don´t worry no body has ever bought any rocks from me so far. Hahaaha
