This is really a beauty. Thank you for showing us this piece of a planetary meteorite. We are looking forward to see more Martian and Lunar meteorites..

Rivulets, like on...many tektite surfaces! Really strange, precious and definitely weird meteorite. Thanks John.

Hi John, very glossy, black fusion crust and fresh pale-gray matrix. Those deep rivulets (furrows) are quite interesting. Thanks for sharing this martian beauty!

Tissint with its deep black and glassy crust and the shining interior is really a beauty of a meteorite. Thanks for sharing, John.
