Thank you all for the kind comments. I would love to have a Carbonaceous chondrite in my collection but I am a man of modest means and I don't think there an affordable option will come available. However, I never thought I would get a Mesosiderite or Sikhote Alin sphere either. If anyone has a large Carbonaceous chondrite whole specimen they need processed I will work for material, or at least a discount on it in some cases :)

Anne, I agree absolutely with you. On the other side ... Difficult to explain. I must confess that this series of mini-planets is fascinating indeed. The standarized form and format makes the different kinds of matter even more singular. Not my style, but I can't withdraw from the evidence of these spheres.

you too only have one person's opinion Ann... most of these named/defined materials have more than enough rock to go around, and to also waste if someone want to buy enough and chooses to. David always sell his scraps too...not tossed in the trash. I know another statement/request that folks like to say: "all NWA's should be classified!"... which is not going to happen, and just another noble but unfeasible thought.

Sorry guys, I'll have to disagree with all of you. All I see is all the meteorite pieces that were cut off, grinded of. Wasted.

A to Z...complete in one sense. :/ Nice to see another photo of a "brick" meteorite(Nininger museum), which to me has the look of a gas giant planet in this lineup. Great stuff David!!
