DENSMORE (1879), NORTON COUNTY, KANSAS, U.S.A. 
Stone. Olivine-hypersthene chondrite (L6).

Three fragments of the Densmore L6 were originally found in 1879, totaling 32.7 kg., and an additional specimen, weighing about 34 pounds, was found circa 1950. The specimens available here were acquired from the private collection of Terry Schmidt of Tiara Observatory, Colorado Springs, Colorado, pre-l993. Both specimens are professionally prepared slices showing very fresh, unweathered, dark gray-brown to brown-black stone matrix with small, bright metallic inclusions very profusely disseminated throughout.  Specimens each have two sawed edges, and two natural edges. The uncut edges of each slice have natural, irregular surfaces. One of the flat surfaces of each specimen has been professionally lapped and polished.  Pricing is @ +/- $4.00 / gram.
