 From your post it really should be What don't you collect. ;>)

I guess you may not have too many martian or lunars.

I collect similar to you except I don't go for too many irons. Just
have a couple to show people and sxplain the broad range of meteorites.
Chondrites of all shorts (especially W0 unequilibrated) and HEDs. I too
love Dho 007
