Have you seen that blue, really 'odd' colored stone that grows naturally in block shapes?
I have a piece, but I dont want to pull out all the camera equipment right now to take a picture of it, but I will tomorrow. It is really amazing when you look closely at it. It has the entire prism of color in its reflection, yet maintains a deep blue color on its own.
I also have a meteorite. That thing gives me a headache.
I wonder how old they are as well,
Thay are said to be relics from the beginning of the solar system
around 4 billion years ago; occasionally thay fall on us.
it is possible.. that we have so MANY pieces in circulation for easy purchase..
I mean , there has to be a limited number of them available correct?
The limited number is very hi; (no pun).
For an ez example, think of the particles that constitute the rings of Saturn.
When Earth was young and forming, it got hit millions of times
by falling objects, but not all of them fell then. Some fall now.
In the summer c. 2 months ago, I saw one trace an arc across the sky
above upstate NY.
We cannot begin to guess how many residual particles of condensed
iron and nickle remain up there from the time of early planetary formation,
possibly billions of them.
