If you had read the thread properly, you would have noticed that I came here looking to have my rocks verified, not misjudged from afar. I never said that I had identified nanodiamonds, I said some of the rocks had the APPEARANCE of nanodiamonds. They are covered in tiny glistening, crystaline carbon particles, spherical molecular structures, that are quite obvious to see! What do you mean in a "morphed sedimentary matrix'. The rocks are NOT and could NOT be sedimentary, they are all metamorphic from an impact.
And- What do you mean- "Have been following these pages for a number of years"?-please clarify! Your "constructive guidance" was a suggestion to contact ones who can do nothing.
1) Verification: It would appear that others besides myself have informed you that you are dealing with sedimentary materials. You have been provided with the name and genesis of the formation of concern. A serious researcher would have pursued these references. As qualified research would not appear to be your forte

2) Nanodiamonds: To quote, verbatim, minus the "ums and ahs" "And you'll see evidence of what appears to be shock quartz and nanodiamonds"

3) The "years" reference was to the forum in general. Rest assured that your recent contributions have been thoroughly read.
4) The "constructive guidance" quite likely did put you in touch with individuals who could have easily verified the sedimentary origins of your "examples". Did you actually, specifically ask them this? Or did you request some other fanciful determination?
Sorry, but with all due respect, I believe it is your research skills that are quite slacking! Your links are to general information about the geology, and not specific to Northeastern Marshall County, Mississippi. First link describes the geological units in vast general terms. The second link was published in 1964 and is also just a general description. There is very little/if any geological information available. There is no LiDAR, no core samples, no rock samples, no tree ring data,...or any studies done to make any dertermination. Do you not realize this?
1. There is NO sedimentary process that can produce a circular pattern on boulders, fuse huge slabs together, forge hollow spaces and holes throughout, and show such obvious signs of melt. You are mistaken, sorry! [look more closely at the photos, especially where I am pointing!]
2. Yes, that is right, I said- "...what ""APPEARS" to be shocked quartz and nanodiamonds..." When something APPEARS to be, it does NOT mean that it has been proven, it just means that it looks as IF it could be. But 'we' may never know with such ignorant attitudes!
3. You have to read a lot more than what I have posted. You have to read ALL the original accounts, study the rocks in much better detail and where I point to in the pictures!, You have to spend a lot more time studying the satellite view! Why would I say this?! Judging by your comments, you have not put the study in
4. No, nothing 'fanciful' just asked them to look at something unusual. They already knew what was up- I say this because of how quickly and surely the guy responded, as if 'matter of fact', Prof. Swann was already on his mind, and it was predictable. There are many that do not wish to have this discovery found to be fact, so they play their little games.
I do plan on showing more soon. So far I have been disappointed in the majorities lack of investigative skills and understandings of these events. But, there are many intelligent enough to understand, so I still have hope that history, impact science, geology, public safety,... will find the study, facts and truths
I have shown the rocks to many. Most have no idea what they are, but admit their 'strangeness'. There have been several to have no problem understanding that they have to be impactites and could no way be concretions. I can name a few that you may know, though not at this time!
In other words- If you want to continue this argument, you had better put in the study first!
