Here is your answer Kevin. Enjoy!? :-(((?https://onlineonly.christies.com/s/deep-impact-martian-lunar-other-rare-meteorites/lots/1623#browse-lots?As for the heart-shaped iron, it was pulled from the auction. It was a Taza, not a Sikhote-Alin as represented. And I am sure your house is worth more anyway.?Anne BlackIMPACTIKA.comimpactika at aol.com

Subject: [meteorite-list] 'Heart-shaped' meteorite - Worth more than my house in Costa Rica?
(Not yet for sale) - Lux 1/1 120m2 cabina on 1750m2 of mountaintop at 1000m altitude in western Costa Rica. Perfect, always spring-like climate. Coffee removed and replaced with multiple tropical fruits and grafted Haas avocados thriving on manicured terraces sloping down to rain forest. Sits on huge aquifer generating endless water. Best sunset views in the country (Pacific Ocean). Separate rancho for witnessing Scarlet Macaw fly-overs and up to a dozen toucans sitting in the next tree. Double, concrete-block garage built to same earthquake-resistant standards as house and designed to be two more bedrooms and bath. Quartzite countertops, marble shower and coral-rock fireplace. Spanish floor tiles, wood ceiling beams throughout. The 17th century window 'bars' copied from a cathedral in Nimes, France were crafted by the same Italian brothers that did these on my first home here, 'LaQ'. Fifteen running meters of panoramic windows rise up to the 4.5m high ceilings, offering dramatic close-up views of mountains
cascading-to-the-sea. Property located at the end of a dirt road and is hidden behind block wall for complete privacy (and security). Sat and cable TV, high-speed internet.
But in the always slow CR real estate market full of such 'trophy properties', getting $300,000 cash, same as the expected low-bid on the Iron meteorite Darryl offered for V-Day, would be difficult.?
Does anyone know what the Iron brought at last week's Christie's auction? Curious....
Saludos a todo.
