Labeling Question new
      #5651202 - 01/29/13 09:27 PM

So I realize this is a bit of a superficial question, but to be fair, I am relatively new at meteorite collecting (mostly micromounts at this point). Anyways, most of the meteorites labels are straight forward. However, I have a tiny sample of Dhofar 081 (lunar specimen), NWA 2626 (martian specimen) and tatahouine (possible connection to 4-vesta). As such, I was going to make placards for each of their origins but then I have the following options:

Lunar, Martian, Vestian (?)
or
Moon, Mars, Vesta

I prefer Lunar and Marian, but Vestian sounds... well... weird. and of course, Lunar, Martian and Vesta would look odd. Just curious of how anyone else has addressed this.

Hi Nick,

How about Vestal? If it was good enough for the virgins it should be good enough for our rocks. : )
