Compared to the Franconia, it has much less metal but the Chondrules are so much more visible.

Wish I could, being a first mate sounds much better than being a Project Manager for IT Implementations.

Silicated Campo, this one is so nice looking, but it doesn't look good in the pictures.

I know this is bad but I ordered labels (thanks for the link Davio) and a request for a Sikhote from the Tucson rock and mineral show . If we get a bonus this year I will get a couple more including a Gebil, large Gold Basin and a Seycham. Otherwise my collection will stall for a while as the hobby budget is mostly spent. What did some one say about a second job????
