My favorite individual in the collection—interesting features, story, and science with amino acids and pre-solar grains. Hope those cracks don’t get any bigger!

Yes, Scott, this one had a rough landing, nobody there to welcome it with a pillow. :-) But I believe it will be ok if handled with care. Glad you like it.

Beautiful oriented example Scott...I used to have a half stone with some similar features with a good story too and regret now that I let it go for research. Replaced now with an almost identical Agua Zarcas.
