Hello Gary and List,

wow, since I had been lucky.
And can not wait to look at the thin section under my microscope.
Thanks for the great mystery and the thin section Gary.

Yes, how I came to this meteorite?
I have only seen the hem around the chondrule.
It was clear to me that there must be a carbonaceous chondrite.
The chondrule is very well trained and appears to be large.
Thus, it was unlikely that it could be a CO or CM.
These are usually very small chondrules, which are not as well defined.
So for me there was only CV3 or CK3 or CR2 left.
Since preparing thin sections almost entirely of his own material.
So I looked at Gary's website, which material was best fit to the chondrule.
And so I wrote NWA 6957 and had great luck with it!

Best regards and thanks again to Gary,

>> Aloha listserv members,
>> The Big Kahuna is stoked to announce that a new shipment of expertly prepared thin sections have arrived, and will soon be available online and through ebay sales (fujmon).
>> But in the meantime, BK will give this thin section (in protective case) to the first person who can correctly guess the name of the meteorite from which it was made. Good luck to all the meteorite aficionados!
