Best regards List,
This thread teeters on several ideals.
The purest meteoritic may want to see Every
meteorite given to a museum or scientist to do the
same. I Agree. [Study and Preserve]
Finders, hunters, camel jockeys, girls in wheelchairs,
anyone who is lucky enough to make a Find--Kudos to you.
You will do what you wish with found meteorites.
Finders love what they're doing, dealers love it even more
and collectors love what they have (as I do).
But when someone tells me that They can "transform" a
4 Billion year old object into something that is now saleable
and if anyone disagrees with the shape or presentation it is
objectionable. I Disagree....
To me it is clear- if you're going to whore it out- don't complain
if someone presents a meteorite it in a different way.
I think that Skull is an Eternal piece of art.
Hopfully it will find its way into a museum.
