Willcox Playa

Recommended Posts

Recovering from elbow surgery and I was getting bored walking around my neighborhood. I decided to go out to Willcox Playa and walk around there for a several hours.  The weather was perfect today. When I first got there I did about a 1 1/2 mile circle around my truck and as I was just getting back to my truck...Space Rock! 18.6 grams.

Very fortunate! I'm not well-versed in meteorites. Am I right to suppose this is an iron specimen?

Bedrock Bob is correct. It is identical to a meteorite I found out there last year that is currently being classified at Arizona State. It will most likely be a L6 chondrite.
