ALDAMA (b), Mexico

A single 66.5 grams stone was found by a rockhound near Aldama, Chihuahua, Mexico, in the summer of 1996. Aldama (b)  is  classified as an H5 chondrite. I had the opportunity to purchase a slice from the Hupe Brothers and cut it into macro specimens. Each of the slices is well polished; the fragment broke off the specimen I was cutting. Here is an opportunity to acquire a very low weight Mexican meteorite at a very reasonable price.
