Jürgen / jnmczurich writes:
Chihuahua City is a chemically and structurally anomalous and recrystallized iron. It is a polycrystalline aggregate of centimeter-sized precursor taenite grains, each about 2.5-3 cm2 in size (to see in pictures 1 and 2). The iron contains small, but long schreibersite ((Fe, Ni)3P)) and a lot of small rounded cohenite ((Fe, Ni, Co)3C) inclusions. Some trolite inclusions up to 5mm in diameter are visible too. Chihuahua City is one of my favorite irons in my collection.

The close-up views are about 8x6 mm.

Dealer trade: 1991

Nice example and doubles up as an excellent bottle opener? ;-)
