Hello Mark, hello List,

My small Salaices individual (8 gr) also looks pretty bad, it is
weathered and shows signs of rust.

Salaices - H4
Mexico, Chihuahua
27 00' N / 105 15' W
Find 1971

1203g, Tempe, Arizona State Univ.
395g, Washington, U.S. Nat. Mus.
BM London, 1906g (part slice), 32.7g.

One mass of 3.9 kg was found 6 km SW. of Salaices and within the Allende
strewnfield, about 1.5 km NE. of Rancho Blanco, Meteor. Bull., 1972,
(51), Meteoritics, 1972, 7, p.229. A further mass, 39 fragments
totalling 20.6 kg, was found in 1981 about 7.2 km WSW. of the original
find site, close to Pueblito de Allende.

Best wishes,
