Hi Pete,

Without seeing the sample I am just guessing but it might be iron sulfide.

I have a puzzelment on one of my UNWA's.
There are a number of yellow very shiney blebs in a dark brown matrix. Two
of the blebs are on oposite sides of the slice as near as I can tell
directly accross from each other. These are the largest of all the blebs, at
1X2 mm in size. Any thoughts?
If they were copper, they would have tarnished. I don't think brass is
possible, So I'm left with, dare I say, gold?
Do supernovas produce elements much higher than iron?
