140630 - Image of the Month for July

Postby Matt Smith » Mon Jun 30, 2014 7:50 pm


This month I had the choice of two images kindly provided by Mike Simms. I couldn't resist this 5.6g Itqiy (EH7-an) specimen as I do find myself drawn to unusual classifications. Itqiy is the ONLY specimen in the Meteoritical Bulletin database with the EH7-an classification. Click here to view the image in the Gallery or here for our archive of all previous "Image of the Month" images.

I'm still looking for more image of the month submissions, as always!

Really interesting stone Matt, and Mike of course. I am wondering what the light coloured inclusions are - are those the enstatite crystals, or metal?
