Re: Jim noted, "I got this slice in a trade from Blaine Reed under the NWA
2871 number which had a tkw of 3467 grams."
As par for you Jim, very awesome slice. I mistyped my last e-mail, my slice
is NWA 2871. At 2.2 grams it is much smaller then Jim's 178...but it would
be just as impressive if this was a two-dimensional world. I'll let you
think on that for a second. (pause.)
"Blaine is not a list member."
No, he sees the list as a bad thing. As we do tend to kick up dust every so
often...and turn people off of meteorites.
"Sorry about the bad photos"
As you noted, it is a very hard meteorite to photograph well. Mine is even
a little harder to photograph....as I can't seem to find it off hand to
share it. Did I ever tell you about the lunar meteorite I found? That NWA
482 slice was lost for almost a year.....
Wichita, Kansas...yes Kansas...where meteorites are about 2500 years old!
