Hi List,

After reading the papers on NWA 2736, which are now available online, it
sounds more like an EL6 than a true Aubrite to me. Why would the round
objects not be thought of as chondrules? To me, it is like trying to fit a
round peg into a square hole. I talked to a few scientists who would debate
the classification of Aubrite for NW 2736. It would be interesting to hear
others' thoughts on this. Is there a single sole out there that believes
NWA 2736 is really an Aubrite by definition?

My Thoughts,

I didn't get the question,
What Aubrites would be worth?
Most of them are available, look at the dealers pages.
I guess, cheapest should be Mt.Egerton, tataaah let's start discussion why
it's an AUB and not a mesosiderite.
Egerton should be obtainable at 15$/g in small pieces (at least I am selling
them at this price), with Egerton it's the same as with Tatahouine, the
larger the specimen, the higher the gram price.

No desert Aub?
What about Killgores NWA 2736 ?

I too am curious what Aubrites would be worth, especially Norton County,
that years of discovery in the hot deserts have yet to find a new one?

Obviously UNM has a big Norton County, but how much of that is actually out

side of their main mass and in private collections?
