Well, if anyone ever has any 'scrap' iron meteorite, I'll be delighted to
take it off their hands. That is a material that I routinely hot forge back
into solid material that I can then use in my Damascus for knife blades.
Minimal waste from processing slices, spheres, skulls, etc. :)
Guess the real question is 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 scrap 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
