It's too bad that we missed another chance to find out about those
fine-grained inclusions that are so prominent in the original "BL", NWA
1658. I see they aren't mentioned in the classifications of NWA 2826 or
2053 either.

This week I will be sending several samples to Bathurst to try your new
classification service on behalf of several collectors. One of these finds
contains the occasional dual lithology piece. We will be providing an
excellent cut and polished sample so that the research facility will be sure
to include both in their classification.

general with classifying meteorites.
The piece that I sent in for classification wasnt
nearly as nice as the larger cut in my photo. I didnt
realize that it was so nice until yesterday when I
started cutting it up. If I had used a different
sample I would probably have gotten the different
