I dont know where you are getting your information but
I have sent my thin sections to 6 or 7 seperate
institutions for classification work and they have all
come back saying how high the quality is. One
institution even asked me if I was interested in
making a deal to make their thin sections for them
after seeing the sections that I have. I had to turn
them down though because of a very long turnaround
Maybe you should get some scientist to look at them
who actually got experience dealing with thin
scetions. Scientists from most of the worlds major
institutions have seen my thin sections and nobody
ever commented that they were not up to par. Just the
opposite actually. Comments are always about how good
they are.
Is this another one of your attack ads that you
typically make against other dealers meteorites after
you decide that you want to sell something similar
also and dont like other dealers competing with you?
You know, somehow over hype all the overpriced stuff
that you sell just to sell the story so that you can
charge double for your meteorites? You planning on
selling thin sections anytime soon? That would explein
your dislike of my thin sections.
I will go with what some of the worlds top scientists
think rather than somebody who spends his time trying
to think up the next best story to tack on to his
My thin sections are second to none and you know it.
