John writes:
An early option for a Martian meteorite. The NWA 1068 and NWA 1110 Martian shergottite pairing had many small individuals when found.

Shown here is a lightly brushed 1.22 gram individual of NWA 1068. Also shown (photos 7-9) is a small thin slice (1 CM long) of NWA 1110 showing the interior with and without polishing the saw marks.
