A Feature In Meteorite Times Magazine
by Tom Phillips and Martin Horejsi

The Amazing Microscopic Meteorite World

of Tom Phillips

The above picture shows a 65g end section sitting on a microscope viewing stage. The slightly darker oval on the slice is oil from an oil immersion microscope objective that Phillips used to photograph a feature in the meteorite.


The lower picture is a tiny region within the dark spot magnified 1600X. The green band is likely a shocked region that is known to contain the high pressure mineral Ringwoodite.
