Bondoc Mesosiderite-B4 Meteorite ? The Good & the Bad

I received my Bondoc whole specimen yesterday and I processed it into my sphere rough cube today.

The GOOD ? Very easy to cut

The BAD ? not a lot of visible metal

Here is a picture of the whole specimen


Here is a picture of it after cutting


Overall I will be happy to have a meso sphere in my collection, I just wish it had more metal in it.

I?m soaking a small slice in phosphoric acid so we will see how that turns out

I plan to sell the end cuts and slices but don?t really know what it?s worth so if you have an opinion on it?s ?value per gram? please reply
