Geoff Notkin's book on the Monnig Collection has some interesting correspondence about the Pena Blanca meteorite recovery. It is a beautiful Aubrite...thanks Rover.

I have always enjoyed seeing Pe*a Blanca Spring. It is indeed a beauty, chocked full of all sort of interesting things. This meteorite caused such a clamor years ago. It seems it has almost been forgotten. So thank you for sharing this with us!
