Hi John, List,
You may be right about not having a problem getting a US
chondrite classified, however, if it was found in the Mohave desert it is likely
to get a number instead of a name. Unfortunately, Nom Com will likely lump it in
with the nearest DCA,
I'm wondering how much longer it will be before the
entire Mohave desert is one big DCA like NWA?
IMCA # 1941

I'd love to see a photo also, but I live in Philadelphia so I won't be seeingthis in person. :-)?That aside,I'm assuming from your post that this is a"chondrite" native to the USA, and not just another NWA.?I have about 25 NWA'sundergoing classification now, and I have more I'd like to get classified but itis indeed hard to find a lab that will work on NWAs that look like obvious OCs.?I think that is a mistake on their part, because there are so many uniquethings to be found in meteorites. ?In my opinion, many labs would thinkdifferently about a "native" US chondrite, than an NWA chondrite. ?I do notthink you will have trouble finding a home for it if it is a USA find.??Cheers,John?Sent:?Monday, September 14, 2015 at 5:47 PMFrom:?"MEM viaMeteorite-list" <meteorite-list at meteoritecentral.com>To:?"Meteorite MailingList" <meteorite-list at meteoritecentral.com>Subject:?[meteorite-list] Local toLas Vegas expert needed to rewiew a find.I am in contact with a Las Vegasresident who has, by all appearances fair-si
