Need to make sure it's not a IIAB indistinguishable from Sikhote-Alin. Just like Tamarack, Dutch Flat, and Sawtooth Knob.

Great pic. Some of the flow lines make some of regmaglypts look very much as if they were fingerprints.

I had honestly not realized all of the beautiful flow lines and details until I just saw the photo that Paul took at my house. I wish Jim Kriegh had been able to see the photo!

Should say Jim Kriegh and I were at the rock shop. The owner of the shop has died but he told us he remembered when it came in. His two sons run the store now.

Unfortunately it is not part of the Tucson Ring meteorite! Jim Kriegh were at the rock shop on Kinney Road by Old Tucson about 15 years ago and it was for sale for $200. We thought it was a good gamble and each gave $100. Jim had the end cut and took it to our local assay office and it did not match the Tucson and also it does not have the tiny black specks that I see in the Tucson Ring. We inquired about the names listed and could not find any info. We looked in the area several times and did see a nice Gila Monster walking around! It was a good adventure and mystery.

Wow! If this is part of the famous Tuscon Ring iron?
