What a beautiful piece of Imilac indeed. The perfect addition to the crystal slices and "skeletonns" we know. Perhaps I personally would have tend to let it completely uncleaned, or only "trousers pocket - cleaned". On the other hand: all the fine structures - guess I notice flowlines at the edges - are clearer to be seen in that condition. In any case: a wonderful individual of Imilac. Congratulation, Marc, Peter.

Far more FeNi than olivine - very interesting. Beautiful specimen. Congrats, Marc! Thanks Peter!

That's just fabulous. Looks like it fell yesterday. I'm amazed. What an incredible moment finding that preserved for all those years.
