classification question ?


Recommended Posts

I can't find any info on this type of meteorite. type IRUNG R - date found 1818.

IRUNG R is tough to find. A second IRUNG R was found 30 miles west of this find in 1915. No other irung type meteorite have been documented in this state.

Can anyone tell me what kind of meteorite a irung R is ?

Thanks for your help Jerry

from met bull the only iron ungrouped (ir ung) found in 1818 is Cambria, link below, not sure what the R stands for.

Jerry, South Byron was the one in 1915 but the the way the information is listed I couldn't find the 'R' that you mentioned. Did you find it some where else during your research? Just curious, because if it was a chondrite, the R would represent a Rumurutiite. Jason ;)

The IRUNG R was on both finds that are aprox 35 miles apart. I hope they are from the same fall. I have a huge wooded area almost at the halfway point between both finds directly inline with each other.When weather is good will check out extensivly with my minelab.

Thanks Jerry
