> I took off a very small little chip from my 332gr WI meteorite. I them examined the fresh matrix with a loupe and notice some sort of green mineral, it is a crystal of some sort, I never seen this before in a meteorite, it could be common, I just never seen it before. If I had a decent camera I would get a photo of it to show everyone. I cant wait to see it sliced up. I am very curious now, even more than before.
> Is this common? Does anyone know what it could be? Has anyone else noticed this in a slice, fragment or broken surface?
