I found this little bugger East of town (Tucson). Sorry about the poor picture quality but I guess you can blame that on Obama since I'm using his phone. (Hey, he gets blamed for everything else.) Anywho, the stone doesn't respond to a magnet at all but I'm thinking a eucrite wouldn't be entirely out of the question. It has the ubiquitous coating of caliche so a lot of its surface details are obscured but you might be able to make out some grayish clasts in one of the pics. It also has patches of what may be remnant fusion crust. They are too thick be desert varnish anyway. Is anyone familiar with achondrites, especially HEDs..?
