Bernd, after swinging a detector out there all day and digging up hot rocks, crust or not you'll know a GB chondrite when you find one! :) Nice one, Twink.

Visually, yes, but it sings loudly when the metal detector is waved over it!! Glad to share the Gold Basin memories.

Fortunately there is some fusion crust left. Otherwise it would have been hard to determine visually that it is a meteorite. Thanks for sharing, Twink!
