Ron mused ;-)
"This reminds me of a certain Mars meteorite that went unnoticed for 20 years :)"
Two stones, weighing 452.6 gr and 245.4 gr respectively, were found by Bob
Verish in his back yard while he was cleaning out a box of rocks that was part
of his rock collection. The specimens may have been collected ~20 years ago
in the Mojave Desert.
