Just a little off topic trivia. My college anthropology professor, who also happened to be head of the New Mexico Game Department, was responsible for the introduction into the wilds of New Mexico of the Barbary Sheep, the Persian Ibex, and the African Oryx. All doing well.

Still a very beautiful rare meteorite from Anne's collection. Thank you.

A 291 gram slice of Tinnie - absolutely devoid of vugs - can be seen on p. 19 of Bob Haag's "The Robert Haag Collection of Meteorites, Private Collection Edition"!

Tinnie is described as a "plessitic ataxite with numerous vugs". if you happen to own => KILLGORE K. and M. (2002) Southwest Meteorite Collection, A Pictorial Catalog *=, you can look at several such vugs on page 157. They are quite conspicuous!

*Note to myself* Should more often have a look on the sheep. Thanks again, Anne, for such a rareness.
