Hello Mike, Matt and List,
I agree with both of you.
As for that CD - well, someone will buy the lot, then become very
disenchanted with meteorites when they realize what they have done.
As for my personal collecting interrests, with few exceptions, I can't say
that I have been interested in anything with the designation, NWA - XXXX. I
like meteorites with stories behind them. Interesting ones from a
scientific, historical or cultural perspective. I recently got the most
calcium carbonated crusted Gold Basin you have ever seen and I love it. I
have added it to my "teaching collection" as a great example of a highly
weathered meteorite (not all finds are in pristine condition, you know :-)
and I like it better than any NWA/Morocco/Saharan/unclassified/possible
transported/ meteorite I have seen. It has a nice story behind it.
Now, I realize that others may not share my collecting interests and that is
wonderful. It's nice that we live in such a diverse world with people who
have different predilections.
As for selling, I won't be selling any NWA unclassified material, either by
the gram or kg.
