I collect minerals as well as meteorites, and yeah, that's a massive,
obviously not gem quality beryl crystal both of which are found in Maine. It
looks to be terminated and does have nice hexagonal crystalization, but it's
not a meteorite.
Worse part is, he has two bids on it.
To add further insult to injury is the $14.00 shipping.
