As I keep raving about this 180g+ slice of Estherville, I got to thinking
about it's origins, as I asked the list earlier... the question I was
wondering is... is the iron present in the mesosiderite identical in
composition or could they have been sourced from other iron asteroidal
Obviously, if the iron is identical, then I would have to admit it was a
core-mantle sample, but then that would be a bit confusing with the olivines
in it... If the iron is not identical in composition then the medosiderite
was a product of surface action.

Sorry if the question seems naive!

very best
