So I realize this is a bit of a superficial question, but to be fair, I am relatively new at meteorite collecting (mostly micromounts at this point). Anyways, most of the meteorites labels are straight forward. However, I have a tiny sample of Dhofar 081 (lunar specimen), NWA 2626 (martian specimen) and tatahouine (possible connection to 4-vesta). As such, I was going to make placards for each of their origins but then I have the following options:

Lunar, Martian, Vestian (?)
or
Moon, Mars, Vesta

I prefer Lunar and Marian, but Vestian sounds... well... weird. and of course, Lunar, Martian and Vesta would look odd. Just curious of how anyone else has addressed this. :question:

Hi Nick,

How about Vestal? If it was good enough for the virgins it should be good enough for our rocks. : )
