2017 was an interesting year from any perspective, meteorites included. But then again meteorites are always interesting so anything they touch becomes a curiosity as well.

Micro Visions

Cole Creek H5

Cole Creek H5

One of my first thin sections was Cole Creek H5. I’ve picked up a few more slides over time because it’s a fun meteorite to view in thin section.

Two Unusual Bow-tie Thailandites

Two Unusual Bow-tie Thailandites

The upper specimen is a 120 gram giant that offers a great story on extensional necking and incipient parting. The odd little 12.4 gram piece, almost an order of magnitude smaller than the one above, remains a mystery to me. Both of these specimens are cylindrical in cross-section. It has long been accepted tektite dogma […]
