Mike and List:

Maybe that's better:

I'm not to big on Irons - only have a few and my first was an Iron.

I favor Achondrites, the more exotic the better - I think it's so neat to see crystals in a meteorite.? I also think meteorites without metal are really cool.? The bigger the crystals - the better.? I favor Mars over Lunars.? I have three mars and only one lunar.

It's such a fasinating hobby,

Greg S.
