Hello all

One of the true gems of the Tucson Gem and Mineral show was this new impact
melt from Niger. A stunning grey green swirled exterior, some with metal
warts and teeth popping out of the surface. I was lucky to be one of the
first ones there and had a chance to cherry pick the most interesting
looking ones with the most metal. It is amazing to look at these and
speculate just what was going on during the formation of these, chunks of
iron embedding themselves in liquid rock. Classification is underway at ASU
and I'm sure there will be much to say. Feast your eyes...
