Nice clear pictures of a polished face will go a long way to help determine
(not conclusively) that you have an ureilite.

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?
