Hi Chris & All,
I have a hollow meteorite and wrote about it in both METEORITE
MAGAZINE (Brief "in the news" or a "letter to the editor") and a full
length article in VOYAGE!
It was definitely, in my opinion, a case of weathering, with
the inner core being more subject to corrosion than the outer core.
Still, it was visually stunning and I treasure it as one of my top
10 pieces in my collection (for that reason).
I will see if I can find the old JPGs and set up a URL IF list
members are interested. - Let me know.
Best wishes, Michael

When Jesus said "Love your enemies" I think he probably
meant don't kill them.
