During the 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, the ace photographer at the MPOD will be visiting meteorite dealers and bringing you highlights from their rooms.

MPOD writes:
Today we present Keith and Dana (the Meteorite Lady) Jenkerson of KD Meteorites, and their daughter Zoie, aka Miss Meteorite. They hail from Kingman, Arizona. They are displaying a lot of pallasites in various forms and with some unusual finishes. Perhaps the most unusual are their Damascus knives that incorporate meteoritic material and novel fabrication processes. They also have some cool display gizmos, including large iron specimens on custom-made artistically-wrought motorized turntables and small solar powered turntables for smaller pieces.

They are in room 103 at the Hotel Tucson City Center (formerly the Inn Suites (will that name ever be dropped?)).

Photo 2 shows a "hieroglyphic" Seymchan, as Dana called it. It features an excellent etch, darkened chromite areas, sparkly Schreibersite, and a nifty olivine crystal smack in the middle.

Photo 3 is a slice of the Acomita pallasite, which was found in June of 1962, in Cibola Co., New Mexico, USA. TKW is 3.96 kg.

Photo 4 is a knife made from Seymchan - note the pallasitic spacer - and juniper burl.

Hey guys, how in the world did you get those olivines to go around the handle of the beautiful Damascus knife, assuming you made it? BTW Very cool web site and good quality pics of the specimens, "awesome". I dig that Xmass tree moldavite - gotta show the misses. Also, I agree with Shams comment. Thanx and best of luck with the sells over there and in 2014.
