Carol,

My in laws gave my wife and I cash as a Christmas gift so I just ordered a 300 gram Campo, 100 gram Gebel and 24 grams Ghubara (since I liked yours do much) and tomorrow I go to Ikea (I blame Davio for that). Pictures coming soon.

Oh I forgot I ordered some meteorite books.

The collection grows new [Re: csa/montana]
      #5023606 - 01/17/12 08:42 PM Attachment (23 downloads)

Hello,

My name is Helder and I am meteorite collector.

My collection grows, first off, I got 2 new books. Rocks from Space (still reading) and IMO everyone that has an interest in meteorites should have this book.

The second is Falling Stars (by Mike Reynolds) and its a quick read, nice stories, but I finished it in 1 night. If your teenage kid is interested in Meteorites, I recommend it.

I also ordered labels and a 20 and 40X loupe.

I also got the Ikea case to store my collection, in a week or 2 I will get everything in place and move my collection.

Uh-oh, Helder's shelf has grown a LOT since that first photo from last month! He is one of us for sure - no cure in sight ... a great, great start.

Best Regards,

Of course, I needed stands to store my meteorites, so I recently ordered some. This is the stands on the wood shelf.

New Meteorite Case [Re: hfjacinto]
      #5032779 - 01/22/12 07:03 PM Attachment (20 downloads)

So the wife was complaining that meteorites have taken over the office. And I disagree, my in-laws left for Portugal so my Christmas gift came out. Its the IKEA display case that Davio recommended. The astro photos are mine and the scope is a 9.25 on a CGEM. Its not like I have a closet full of telescope and accessories (oh wait I do, never mind).
