Hello Steve and List,

I would have to say NWA 4468 Primitive Shergottite would be my own personal
"Holy Grail" of Martian meteorites, not only because it is so fresh and
beautiful, but because of the pure hell I had to go through to retrieve it
from Western Sahara. You can read the story in the November 2006 issue of
Meteorite Magazine, image on the cover as well :-)
