Bottom Shelves of New Meteorite Case new [Re: hfjacinto]
      #5032794 - 01/22/12 07:09 PM Attachment (13 downloads)

These are the 2 bottom shelves, I still have space for a microscope and more Meteorites. I also have a rechargeable dehumidifier. The really small meteorite is the Sikhote that I had as a micromount, until I get a bigger one, this will have to do.

Pictures on the Wall new [Re: hfjacinto]
      #5032803 - 01/22/12 07:13 PM Attachment (13 downloads)

I was asked what photo's are in the background. This week I have:

M42

M45

M31

M11

Next week, I will probably replace M11 with the Rosette and the Horsehead (below is a small Rosette).

H.,
The IKEA looks sharp. Great style! I think the max glass shelf weight load is ~13 pounds per shelf.

Helder, that last chondrite is "chondrule-licious"

I love a stone packed with wall to wall chondrules.
