It's getting bumped again back from the dead as I've just been searching for the difference between remnant fusion crust and relict fusion crust and this thread was first page on Big G.

A search for 'what is relict fusion crust' doesn't provide any definitive answers at first glance,some further searching will be required although my instinct tells me that relict fusion crust and remnant fusion crust are the same.It's an interesting topic and one in which I must gain
further knowledge.

WOW!!!! This thread brings back some great memories.
All these names that have posted on here makes me wonder, where have all the knowledgeable collectors gone?

Great thread to bump - great to see those amazing crust photos from Martin - classic!!

I still have 42 NWA 869 specimens from the days listed in this thread in my collection.

The largest is 167.7 grams - most are around 30 grams.

This is one of my better crusted pieces:

I have yet to photograph a specimen of NWA 869 on display at a museum anywhere in the world - but it seems to be the most common meteorite in most people's collections.

The MetBull page is full of photos of NWA 869:

Does anyone have some additional crust photos to share of other meteorites?

Best Regards,
