Thin section between crossed polarizers.   Martian (shergottite)

TKW 698 grams. Fall not observed. Recognized as a meteorite 30 October 1999.

From the MetBul:
Two stones, weighing 452.6 and 245.4 g, respectively, were found by Bob Verish in his backyard while he was cleaning out a box of rocks that was part of his rock collection. The specimens may have been collected ~ 20 years ago in the Mojave Desert.

Note: one may encounter references to the two masses as Los Angeles 001 and 002, or stone no. 1 and stone no. 2, respectively; these are unofficial designations.

Don't miss the zoomable hi-res picture on Krpno.

Thank you Solar...beautiful photos of the American "dream" finds. BTW Paul...the MetBul reference is not for Los Angeles but for a meteorite called Loop (c)...a chondrite.
