I sure wish that Mike would have given me a chance to buy it before he sold it to that British Museum.

I had heard of this meteorite before, but then forgot about it while chasing more well-known historical falls. I'll have to keep an eye out for some smaller micro-sized pieces of this "solar fall". It sounds like a must-have for collectors of rarities. I do recall that this fall is not one you see alot, so I can confirm it is pretty rare on the collector's market.

Regards and clear skies,

PS - you'll know if I ever acquire/sell something like that, because I'll celebrate by purchasing 150mm AP Starfire. :lol:
