No problem Matthias, glad you like it. Did you ever meet W. Zeitschel? I did once during the Munich Show, nice friendly welcoming person. And John L. Funny idea, I never thought of comparing Rodeo to Sumerian cuneiform writing! :-)

Trigonal*->cubical, very interesting. Possibly "Cubic"form [cuneiform] Sumerian etchings. So cool to see what physics and nature produce. Super!! Thank you.

Rodeo is a phosphide-rich, medium octahedrite, which (before reheating) resembled Carbo, Mount Ouray, and Wallapai. Chemically, it is a typical group IID iron, as shown by Wasson (1969). Source => BUCHWALD V.F. (1975) Handbook of Iron Meteorites, Volume 3, pp. 1022-1025.

Excuse me, Anne, for the test - yesterday I had some problems with posting. In any case: a beautiful and rare iron from a legendary source.
