 Guess the real questionis where did the scrap go? ?I can admire the craftsmanship. ?And i am sure it presents a challenging medium to work. ?I can also imagine 15 lbs of srap going into a rubbish bin :( probably more scrapped than i will ever be lucky enough to tuck into my collection.

I really need Someone to explain to me why it is totally
acceptable for someone to cut/slice and/or bathe in acid every meteorite
they can get their hands on (some very rare) and then sell them
at a considerable profit and possibly make a living---but to shape it
into Any other shape is a shame. I hope I spelled Hypocrisy correctly.

Hopefully this skull will wind up in a museum and be preserved for hundreds
if not thousands of years---long after the average collector's specimens
are long gone.

Love ya Anne, John
