    Regolith Breccia

    Hello all, I was doing a a Bixby pic search on this stone. Some of the pic returns were of regolith breccias. I followed the worm hole and that is why I'm posting here. I have not used a magnet to see if it is magnetic because of my reading it will destroy it's natural magnetic field. Did a scratch test and no mark. The reading I did mentions a fusion crust that may be olive-green to light gray, shown in pic. And please dont tell me meteorite dont have holes, I read several articles about Vesicles in meteorites and how they are created. Thank you for the help.

    What were the geologic conditions where you found the stone, i.e. was it found in an area that could contain terrestrial breccias or maghemite?

    Hello, I did not find this piece. I traded for it along with some other strange and weird stones. I asked we he acquired it and as with every collector "on a hike one day". The closest info he did give was in the "Inland Empire Area" and that area is part of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties in California.

    Volcanic in origin. Could have come from any of thousands of individual sites in either San Bernardino or Riverside counties.

    Time for more coffee.
