LGF Foundation Visit

Recommended Posts

Well, after a few weeks of no meteorite pics on the forum, I thought I would post a few pics of meteorites I was able to see and hold at the LGF foundation a few weeks ago. The LGF Foundation is working with the State of Arizona in an attempt to start a Natural History Museum in the Phoenix metro area. Some very cool fossils, artifacts, petrified wood and most importantly... meteorites! In the pictures I am holding a large Campo Ciello Iron, 300 gram NWA Lunar (exterior and slice sides), a 20 gram NWA Martian and my favorite, a Portales Valley H chondrite.

I remember visiting the mineral museum they had in Phoenix a few years ago. I don't recall the exact reason why that's no longer there. Perhaps a budget issue but Phoenix does need a natural history museum given it's size and rich mining history.
