<P>I guess I feel like jumping in on this one.&nbsp; Take a look at ebay item #1186079201 for a piece of Sikhote-alin Rusty Shrapnel.&nbsp; Although you say in your write-up that there are two types of Sikhote-alin, Regmaglypted and Shrapnel, you don't say which type you are offering.&nbsp; $.41 per gram for rusty Shrapnel.....GOOD JOB!!!!</P>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;"&gt; Enchanted Treasures should take this approach as a model.&lt;&gt; Nick&lt;"
<DIV></DIV>&gt;That's a pretty broad statement. Have you got a problem with me or my
<DIV></DIV>&gt;meteorites Nick?
<DIV></DIV>&gt;I offer fine NWA, Sah, and unamed chondrites as well as a few named American
<DIV></DIV>&gt;finds. Most have fusion crust, shock veining, or other points of interest
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that bring them above the average muck. The cuts are nice, the weights are
<DIV></DIV>&gt;accurately reported, and the prices are fair.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Do you think 1012755903 deserves to be called Ugly Rock? I sort of feel
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that it's beautiful mottled and veined interior would deserve a bit more
<DIV></DIV>&gt;How about 1011444051 with some nice clear chondrules and fusion crust... is
<DIV></DIV>&gt;that what you have a problem with?
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Ok, so my picture of 1011796964 looks like a cow pie. It's a nice stone
<DIV></DIV>&gt;though. Same stuff I cut that had the nice shock veining. And some
<DIV></DIV>&gt;gorgeous crust to boot.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Only someone with no sense would call 1010581477 ugly. That's an awesome
<DIV></DIV>&gt;1010482417... just another piece of 00604, but hey fresh crust and a nice
<DIV></DIV>&gt;little specimen.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;And this one... 1010482287. Not the most amazing piece of work on earth,
<DIV></DIV>&gt;but it's got what looks like a nice micrometeorite impact scar on it, and
<DIV></DIV>&gt;it's a nice sized specimen.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;I don't know, maybe I missed the boat somewhere along the way, but your
<DIV></DIV>&gt;comment seems a little out of left field. Perhaps you'd like to explain or
