Hello all

One of the true gems of the Tucson Gem and Mineral show was this new impact 
melt from Niger. A stunning grey green swirled exterior, some with metal 
warts and teeth popping out of the surface. I was lucky to be one of the 
first ones there and had a chance to cherry pick the most interesting 
looking ones with the most metal. It is amazing to look at these and 
speculate just what was going on during the formation of these, chunks of 
iron embedding themselves in liquid rock. Classification is underway at ASU 
and I'm sure there will be much to say. Feast your eyes...
