Dear listies,

what do you think about meteorite slices showing still the marks of
the saw blade, giving you even the opportunity to calculate the saw
blade's diameter?
Alas, times of mirror-finished slices sold by dealers like David New
seem to be gone.
A proposal to dealers:
Sell your slices or partslices
a-quality: polished surface
b-quality: sawed surface.
Most meteorite collectors don't have grinding or polishing tools and
are collecting meteorites also for the aesthetics of a
mirror-finished surface showing fine details.
A partslice showing saw marks is something very ugly. Some collectors
seem to sublimate this ugliness by the thrill to held something
extraterrestrial in their hands and are not demanding for a quality
finished surface.

My 2 (Euro)cents,

Guy Heinen
