Aren't Murchison and Tagish Lake similarly endowed?

Hi Ira,

It is a long standing belief that meteorites won't contain quartz. Now quartz has been found, albeit in minute quantities. When I think of pre-solar grains in meteorites I think of diamonds. Only in meteorites are diamonds more plentiful than quartz.
