Dr. Laurence Garvie at ASU has recently completed the classification of the meteorite I found in the Franconia area in December 2013.

Green crystals can be seen in the patch where the fusion crust is missing, easily visible with loupe or microscope.

Very nice meteorite, Twink. I'm still working on getting the pictures in EoM, Yucca 031 still isn't showing in their database yet!

Nice meteorite, fresh-looking crust and crystals as green as a Yucca palm. Thanks for sharing with us!

Thank you so much for photo's and info about this meteorite you found Twink. I can only dream about finding a meteorite coming from N.Z. What a privilege.
