lunar, aubrite/entatite achondrite, HED?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Here's my new find. A notable University has requested that I send them a sample after sharing photos with them. What do you think? I was told it could be a lunar, aubrite/entatite achondrite, HED, or possibly something new.

Here's the link to my Picasa web album:

It is possible to zoom in by using the magnifying glass button above center of the picture

I used a diamond blade wet saw to cut it. It's still a big IF, but on a good note in preliminary analyzation they have identified plagioclase feldspar. It will take months before I know one way or another however. Wish me luck!

How in the world did you i.d. it as a meteorite ... It looks just like the ultimate leaverite!!! ... Is it magnetic? How's the streak? I hope it turns out to be a good one ... Thanks for sharing all the photos ... Cheers, Unc
