The Meteorite Metamorphosis

Do you remember this picture, those "neolithic-looking" rocks, that I thought were so ugly,The Traveler is Home? Today Ron finished sanding some of his meteorite slices. He cleaned up one of the slices and then etched it. I hope you enjoy seeing the change and I hope I was able to capture the process adequately.



This is before...





The process...





The finished product. It is amazing to see how the beauty of this gift of the heavens emerges from the stone.

  2. It is so nice to "meet" you. I have actually visited several times from Lisa's site, and I've even shared your "Twelve Days of Christmas" post with my family.

    God bless!

  8. Thank you all for your comments. Since this is a new endeavor for Ron he really appreciates all your complements. Ron cut about three slices from a meteorite and so there are many different patterns to be seen even in this one meteorite. He does enjoy it and that is important too.
