I have some Chelyabinsk/Chebarkul lined up through a reliable source, but it may be another week or two before I get my hands on it. When I get it, I will be sure to post some photos. I'm buying a fully-crusted pea for myself (maybe 2-4g) and another gram or two of small fragments that I can resell as micromounts.

From a collector standpoint, I haven't been this excited about a fall in a long time

Coincidentally, a few weeks before this fall, I had decided to rebuild my collection of peas. I used to have a great collection of peas, but I had to sell them off three years ago. Now I am rebuilding for keeps, and Chebarkul will be a nice addition.
