Current Collection - Meteorites new [Re: hfjacinto]
      #4988845 - 12/28/11 05:27 PM Attachment (20 downloads)

My current meteorite collection, the Toluca, Canyon Diablo and Franconia slice are stored. The latest batch were acquired from www.kdmeteorites.com they have seriously nice specimens and not bad at all. I have a couple more stands and riker boxes coming in to store the samples and when showing them. I may get 2 more but thats it for a while.

Ok, ordered 2 more, I am done for a while unless a large Pallasite or Sikhote comes by. I'll post pictures as soon as they come.
