Hell O Ed,
Any updates on what that material was?
I went looking for a gravestone for an old treasure hunter that passed away (my daughters ferret). I may have found the source of the PSM's, I have yet to do the etching. I also picked two small stones that looked like meteorites. They would both stick to a magnet, and they would both cause a compass needle to move, just like a meteorite. When I did the streak test, I found that what I had was a hematite and a magnetite.
The streak test is done with a ceramic tile ( bottom part ), or with the tank top lid of a toilet (inside rough part). A hematite will streak reddish brown, and a magnetite will streak black, while a meteorite will not streak at all unless it is real old and rusty.
I also picked a pocketful of Moqui Marbles, I read that they are suppose to have healing powers and energies. There may be some truth to this since I did kind of feel young once again with my pocket full of marbles.
I read that this marbles may be splatter from a meteor, but other sites say that scientists don't really know how they were formed. I think they could be the work of prehistoric dung beetles.
I also learned that there are male and female. The round ones (which I just naturally picked) are the females. I may order a stud from Utah to put with my ladies.
