McKenzie Draw (b), Texas  H) 34.83 grams

ME-595 McKENZIE DRAW (b), GAINES COUNTY, TEXAS, USA - Stone. Chondrite (H4). “CM” REF: None (NEW!). Found: 1989, Summer -- recognized as a meteorite: 1991. Two distinctly different individuals were found in the same area as the McKenzie Draw (a), described under item ME-573. These were both determined to be H4 stones, yet the MeKenzie Draw (a) and (b) have markedly different appearances! Information on both (a) and (b) appears in “METEORITICS”, Vol. 27, No. l, March l992, P. ll3. All specimens offered here were supplied by Terry Schmidt of the Tiara Observatory, who was responsible for helping to authenticate these finds, and for providing the write-up for “METEORITICS”. A Xerox copy of the information from “METEORITICS” will be sent with each specimen ordered. The McKenzie Draw (b) has a mottled, red-brown to brown-black matrix with scattered, limited distribution of small metallic flakes. Thin, metallic gunmetal black color micro veinlets are very obvious over the cut and polished surface of each specimen. Chondrules are light gray-tan in color. All examples are slices, with the exception of items F) and I), which are end cuts. The cut and polished surface on item I) was prepared on one end of the specimen, and the fusion crust is present over a portion of the back of the specimen. All examples show a portion of the reddish-brown fusion crust, except items A) and J). The edges of the slices without fusion crust have natural, irregular surfaces -- no saw cuts. Pricing is at +/- $6.00 per gram, which is quite reasonable considering the rarity of this H4 (only two individuals found, total weight 2.99 kg.).
