Tulia (iron), Unclassified

Here’s an odd one!  This meteorite is listed in the bulletin as an unclassified iron, and it’s easy to see why: it’s almost completely oxidized.  Modern analytical techniques could probably get a decent analysis of the unoxidized metal grains in this, to put this meteorite into a formal group, but it’s listed as “iron,” for now.

Many thanks to Arnaud Mignan for making this American meteorite (with a total known weight of 190 grams!) available.
