Want everyone's opinion / on this highly unusual morphology.
I don't doubt it is a real meteorite at all just that one side looks altered
or is HUGELY UNIQUE
Christies is currently selling it and gives a cryptic explanation for its
shape as "Modern burnishing"
What the hell does that mean exactly?????
they also mention it could be naturally ventifacted.???????????
Either way I have never seen anything quite like it in the meteorite world.
Anyone else have an explanation ... please chime in on this.
