Ex. Robert Elliott collection.

The background in the photos is an unclassified NWA that way laying around. We thought it was a good color and added interest.

Very good contrast with the background NWA. Good choice.

At 3:30 on Sunday afternoon 1795 December 13, a 56 pound stone fell at Wold Cottage in Yorkshire. The sky was overcast. Suddenly, several persons in the area were startled by something whizzing through the air followed by a series of explosions. A laborer looked up just in time to see a black stone emerge from the clouds and plunge into the soil about 30 feet from where he stood. The ground shook and mud and sod flew up all around him. Rushing to the spot he found a large stone, warm and smoking and smelling of sulfur. (MARVIN U.B. (1996) Chladni and the origins of modern meteorite research (MAPS 31-5, 1996, 560-561).
