Looks very familiar. I had a complete slice of Brenham which I paid over $2,500.00 for do the same thing.? Some well-known dealer, which will remain nameless for now which was more concerned with easy money coated it with lacquer instead of providing a proper polish.? The lacquer was the only thing holding together the flexible slice as it made its way to the nearest trash can.? Some crystals popped out and bounced around the floor like a baby with nasty diapers. What a mess!
I will never buy Breham again no matter what a dealer claims. To me, Brenham is a level five ruster!

Hi List and Happy Thanksgiving coming up to all of you. Anyways, I purchased a 6+ gm. slice of the Admire Pallasite in May of 2011 from an eBay seller with 100% feedback and of course I am not a fan of meteorites with a reputation as a Ruster! The auction by this Seller bragged about how well prepared and preserved his Admire specimens he was selling are. Well I reluctantly bought a Specimen for a $30 price tag. Well now all of you on the list can get a good laugh and view how well preserved this specimen was I purchased! I have posted this on my Website so just click the link below. If anyone else ran into this problem, contact me off list and we can email the Sellers name. I did just email the Seller on this issue and the link below to see for himself. Nothing as yet from him, but I just contacted him, so I will give it some time.
