I disagree entirely with the original post. That's a beautiful meteorite,
saying that it has to be classified to be worth showing is more of the
"where it

This hobby is about the rocks! I find unclassified meteorites to be, at
times, more interesting because there is still mystery left. I like nothing
more than a beautiful "different looking" unclassified meteorite. Lets not
forget where they all come from and not long ago (15 years?), the meteorite
featured in the Picture of the Day would of drawn a lot of interest from nearly
all in this hobby regardless of where it was found or if it had been pigeon
holed yet.

To limit ones interest to only the classified "Hot ticket" meteorites flies
dangerously close to Pokemon card collecting. "I have a Bulbasaur!" "Well
that's nothing, my Bulbasaur is Base Set!"

I'm going back to the microscopes to examine some more mysteries. Who
knows, maybe I'll find a Charizard!
