While browsing and enjoying Martin's Global Collection gallery, I
chanced upon Ginger's beautiful, roundish Mundrabilla slice (diameter
about 1 inch I presume). Although I've been collecting meteorites for
almost 20 years, I have never seen cut and polished Mundrabilla slices.
Many years ago, I bought a similar specimen from the Zeitschels, but, as
I said before, I've never had the possibility to compare mine to someone
else's. According to Buchwald (p. 858) its bandwidth should be 0.55 ±
0.10 mm, which is in accordance with what my specimen shows. The
Widmanstätten pattern of Ginger's specimen looks quite a bit coarser to
me. If anyone has cut and polished Mundrabilla material, I would
appreciate your comparative comments.
