Meteorites, Me, and the Newspaper

Mon, 01 May 2017 23:25:14 PDT

Last month, I had the very great pleasure of spending time with a couple of reporters from our local newspaper. We first crossed paths back in March at a fossil and mineral show in town, and mentioned that meteorites were my game. Several months later, I got an email out of the blue that the reporters […](image)

The Moon In My Hand

Mon, 01 May 2017 22:03:00 PDT

Over the course of my life, I have cut thousands of rocks on diamond saws. Most of the rocks the last twenty years have been meteorites. But until yesterday I had never cut a lunar meteorite. There has been a significant amount of meteorite from The Moon recovered recently, Paul and I decided that we […](image)

The 2017 Veterans Meteorite Hunt

Mon, 01 May 2017 20:45:17 PDT

On the last weekend of April 2017, a small group of U.S. military veterans gathered in the Mojave Desert near Pahrump Nevada to take part in a “group meteorite hunt”. This was an open-invitation to all veterans, whether they had any experience at searching for meteorites, or not. The purpose of this gathering was to […](image)

NWA 2824 Diogenite

Mon, 01 May 2017 18:16:20 PDT

Ted Bunch and other researchers have described many shock induced features in this odd diogenite. We found some to photograph in a few thin sections, all viewed in cross-polarized light. Brecciation is a common result of shock. The clasts in this polymict breccia have a variety of textures. Mechanical twinning, also called shock twinning, is […](image)

An odd class of tektites that formed inside bubble chambers

Mon, 01 May 2017 17:36:00 PDT

When it is time for a new edition, I search through our collection and inventory looking for a stone or group of similar stones with a good story to tell. Over our years of sorting through crates of tektites till our fingers were raw, we have always selected out the unusual or unique or interesting […](image)

After much thought I have decided to publish a new quarterly magazine about hunting, collecting, and the science of rocks from outer space. I will not be accepting yearly subscription payments, only payments as each individual issue is published and ready to mail out to the subscribers. If you have any questions please send me […](image)

The Supuhee Meteorite: Assimilation and Transformation with Indigo

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 23:53:53 PST

The Supuhee, India Chondrite fell to earth in the form of six individual stones back in 1865. Several of those stones landed on an indigo factory but unlike post-industrial revolution factory to follow, the indigo factory was where dyes were made and fabric was dyed.   Indigo dye begins with the leaves of the indigo […](image)

Tucson Gem Show 2017

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 22:29:05 PST

Most years I write something about the meteorite aspect of the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. And it is that time again. Paul Harris and I went to the show with different goals and at a different time frame. We drove this year since we had the time and it is now more convenient to […](image)

MarsFest 2017

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 20:39:18 PST

 – Hosted by NASA & SETI Institute at the Furness Creek – Death Valley National Park, Visitors Center   Recently I was given an invite to be a presenter/volunteer at the SETI Institute’s “MarsFest 2017” program, and to man a public outreach booth displaying my Mojave Desert meteorites. There was a last minute opening when […](image)

NWA 2724 Eucrite

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 18:11:23 PST

The assembly of polymict eucrites is neither gentle nor precise. It involves magma, impact excavation and cycles of rock crushing, mixing, lithification and more crushing. Drs. Wittke and Bunch tell us that NWA 2724 contains both subophitic and cumulate textured rock and is therefore polymict. Here is a thin section that shows this nicely.   […](image)

A messenger from a cometary aerial burst fireball!

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 17:57:49 PST

How can one follow the last issue story that explains the greatest tektite mystery of all time? If you missed it, check the archives. I am now satisfied that the Indoaustralian tektite event consisted of a large cluster of aerial bursts with no deep crater formation anywhere! This month’s Tektite Teaser fits nicely into the […](image)

From Weston To Creston Book Review

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 15:03:54 PST

I have done other book reviews over the years. Many times the books are interesting but not something that I am likely to look at again. That is not the case with the recently released book by Frank Cressy entitled “From Weston To Creston.” After what Frank says is a ten-year effort he has produced […](image)
