So on a stroll through the desert, I come across this highly weathered 7 kg=
It has these spherical structures from one to 15mm in diameter, really stra=
nge. Take it home, cut it open, and it=E2=80=99s not very meteoritic lookin=
g, but then I=E2=80=99ve only seen one meteorite! Can=E2=80=99t find an ear=
th rock that looks like it either, Rapakivi granite is closest, but the tex=
ture and mineralogy are wrong for granite.
Anyone think it=E2=80=99s worth sending in to an expert?
