@Adam: Provenance is absolutely reliable.

Adam, if you would look in the "Catalogue of Meteorites" 5th edition, you will see that half a dozen museums around the world (Field Museum, TCU, DuPont Collection, Moscow...) have pieces of Red Rock. Probably the result of trading with UCLA. And of course they are free to trade or sell to anyone.

Thank you, glad you like it. and yes, that's one meteorite you don't see very often.

The entire mass purchased by the University of California so it is interesting that some was distributed into the private sector?

That's the real genius-spirit: hunting for rabbits, coyotes, grizzlys, whatever - always bagging meteorites. Thank you, Anne, for showing this Red-Rock-rarity.
