That one came straight from the finder who lives in Chile and is a friend of mine. He found it himself in the Atacama. You can hardly get more direct than that.
This is an exciting time for space rocks - Black Beauty Martians and Russian Exploding Fireballs!

Here is my original photo of it. As you can see, my photo is not that great. I love meteorites, but have no gift for photography.

Here's my latest meteorite; it weighs 3.4g.
Nice catch, Carol. Cool provenance as well. You may want to PM Mike and document the finders name for your records.
