Sorry if posts twice.

Greetings List,

Over the years searching the Kentland Disturbance I have found many shatter
cones, impact breccias, melts etc. Recently I've been finding what
appears to be a green melt. I'm not quite sure what is is or if it is
indeed a melt from the Kentland impact. Another collector recently sold
some of this material as a "quench melt", but I'm still not sure that's
what is is. I was hoping some of you with more experience could look at a couple of photos and give me your input. This specimen is really quite beautiful. Check out the photos
even if you can't I.D. it. It was obviously in a plastic state at some
point, but on cooling it has some fascinating crystal patterns. Two
images are at:


Again, I would appreciate any input on this and would even welcome the
opportunity to send this to anyone who specializes in impact material
for a closer examination. Thanks for your time.
