Wow, beautiful stone. Congratulations on your lucky find. I searched some
days there in February, but due to terrible snow storms, I found nothing.
There indeed must be alot of this meteorite on the rough ground there.
I am contemplating going back later this summer when the weather is better
in the mountains.
Please dont cut the stone, it would be a tragedy to cut such a beautiful
piece. Want to sell it intact?
