Because the focus of my collection is spheres I will admit that I don?t really know much about what other meteorite collectors like

I have started to process the smaller slices and end cuts of my Bondoc Mesosiderite by soaking them in phosphoric acid and then I polish them up to 400. I might go to 800 but I have to get some supplies to do that.

They end up looking like this 10 gram slice


I don?t mind risking the ?value of the specimen? on these smaller pieces but I don?t know if I want to do that for these larger end cuts:



What do you all think?
