Its pretty thick, so backlighting doesn't really shine through.

A couple new ones are coming including: Glorieta siderite, Toluca fragment, Odessa individual, Bassakanou and Gao.

Really wanted a Glorieta Pallasite but they are expensive. I think these will be my last major purchases for a while. We did good at work so I got a bonus, the majority of it went toward my wife (she got 3 rocks also and a piece of metal) but a little bit was for my hobbies.

I found a lot of etched Toluca but very few specimens, this is a larger 147 gram specimen. It has a nice shape.

Odessa Iron [Re: hfjacinto]

Name: Odessa Iron

Type: Iron
Group:IAB-MG
Structural Classification: Coarse octahedrite, Og
Location Found: Odessa, Texas, U.S.A.
Size: 63 Grams

Many of the Odessa specimens I saw were small, this is a larger sample that I see no rust on. It looks like a smaller version of the Toluca.
