Hello to the List members,

I'm interested in buying a magnetic susceptometer like the one used by Pierre Rochette (CEREGE - CNRS) for his classification of meteorites by measuring the magnetism of meteorites. (for example the SM-30 by ZD Instruments)

With this portable instrument, he was able to determine the type of meteorites on the terrain. In that case, when you scan a stone, you're in most cases sure that it's a meteorite and not a terrestrial stone.

I would like to know if some of you already used such an instrument when hunting for meteorites.
