    breaking off piece of large meteorite

    I am about to find a huge meteorite. Assuming I find it, how to I break off a fist-sized chunk of it for analysis? Do I need to hire a demolition expert to break off a piece with explosives? Just getting to the site is difficult since the area is in a rainforest, and mostly overgrown. Suggestions?

    If in fact you find it, there will likely be some broken off pieces nearby or around the larger mass, so no need to break any piece(s) off it. If no smaller pieces cannot be found, then just find a cracked section and very carefully hammer a chisel into the crack. That should separate a piece off the larger mass. Good luck and make sure to post pics.
