Happy New Year from sunny Tucson, Arizona, where the Gem Show is only 29 days away.

114.5 gram individual. Iron, ungrouped.

An exceedingly rare "tool" meteorite - it opens beer bottles.

Be careful out there tonight.

Happy New Year to you too Paul, and all of us MPOD fans out here - it has be a non-stop great quarter of space rock images. Super opener, and now I'm wondering if a finely shaved corkscrew shrapnel could pop a champagne cork somehow! PS could that be what's left of a crater on the specimen (between your fingers)?
