I picked these up because they are not your normal hot rock. My 5000 screams on these rocks and I brought them home. The smallest one was posted a couple years ago and several people thought it looked good. The two bigger ones I picked up a couple weeks ago. They were found several miles from where I found the little one. Everyone says meteorites don't leave a streak and here are the results. I rubbed them pretty hard.

The larger ones look like the Wickenburg Meteorite, an L6 chondrite...I've found quite a few of them and those look identical...Good job ... Cheers, Unc

Meteorites.  Look like Wickenburg.  

Dr. Garvey at ASU confirmed my finds as the Wickenburg L6...I had a 1,000 gram collection of the Wickenburg which I sold for a good price...Cheers, Unc
