Hi All,

I have a 186g whole NWAX stone, thus it's unclassified, which I purchased solely because it looked like a Ureilite. The first thing I did was drop it in a jar of nitric to clean it up a bit, just kidding, actually the first thing was to see if it scratched a microscope slide, which it did with ease. Question, is my glass test grounds enough to feel pretty confident that the stone is a Ureilite?
