Hello Webo: Seems like old times. The quartz crystals You mention would not be a problem for a comet dust explanation. Comet dust is full of silicon dioxide [sand].webolife wrote:This is in reference to Starbiters post prior to the above...
I understand where you're trying to go with this, Starbiter, but your last citation in particular affirms the aqueous nature of geode formation, as well as clarifying that the crystals in geodes are silicon dioxide, not dolomite or calcite. The quartz and pyrite crystals I dug out of vugs were formed through the leeching of limey water through the breccia pipes above carrying the silicas and irons down through the rocks... a slightly sulfuric odor was common and the pyrites were very brittle. The limestone originated in a layer that tops much of the Cascade range in this area [Mt. Si area east of Seattle], and I know you wish to attribute that to cometary dust deposition, but a more terrestrial [or perhaps discharging meteoric?] explanation would be simply that lightning is involved, which would also aid in the ionization issues surrounding the mystery of dolomite formation.

The dust to the surprise of NASA also contains iron compounds. The sulphur in the pyrite could be due to transmutation of oxygen as many EU insiders think, or possibly sulphur rich Earth rocks being zapped during the electrical events described in WiC, releasing the sulphur. The folklore is full of descriptions of brimstone [sulphur], associated with fire [electricity]. You seem comfortable with meteoric dust, but not comet dust. Why?
While in MD for the NPA conference, EU insiders announced that Venus was an electric comet. Velikovsky was correct. No equivocation. I pinched myself.
