Portales, New Mexico, USA.
H6 ordinary chondrite.

Fall, June 13, 1998. 1,584 g.

A side of “ribs” anyone? Iron ribs, that is. Portales has crazy metal structure.

Millbillillie, Australia
Eucrite achondrite
Fall, 1960. 946 g.

A beautifully crusted specimen! Hundreds of these were found later, when they became valuable.

La Mancha Region, Spain
Eucrite. Fall, May 10, 2007

This meteorite caused a brilliant fireball seen all over Spain and rare,  calcium-rich, shiny stones rained down on the land of Don Quixote, just south of Madrid. I gave half of what I found to the government of Spain and was able to keep these 6 lovely pieces for myself. (Imagine these scattered under olive trees…)

Camel Donga, Australia
Eucrite achondrite
Find. 1,130 g.

The shiny black crust shows
“frozen” flow lines.

Bilanga, Burkina Faso
Diogenite achondrite
Fall, Oct. 27, 1999.
560 g.
end piece / 179 g.
complete stone.

A rare diogenite achondrite.

NWA. Diogenite achondrite.
Find. 231 g.

Picture this coming in! Magnificent flow lines.

NWA 7831
Diogenite achondrite. Find. 1,718 g.

These were the only rocks for miles around. No wonder they were found by Bedouins.

Tatahouine, Tunisia
Diogenite achondrite
Fall, June 27, 1931. 84 g.

Only a few kilos of this rare meteorite were recovered and this is one of the bigger pieces. Because it broke up late in entry, none of these have fusion crusts.

NWA 752
Rumuruti-type ordinary chondrite.
Find. 61 g

Tons of chondrules, almost zero visible iron—a strange one…
