There is a Eucrite in this auction that may look familiar, and I don't mean because it looks like Bierschinken.? It is NWA 7496 --
and here is where you have seen it before:

And it made an appearance in the textbook titled, "Asteroids":? http://bit.ly/2hvLJuD?? -- as well as, here:? http://bit.ly/2ioeRn5?

And here, as well:? http://meteorites.superforum.fr/t6532p25-bonjour-a-tous?

Although this?"pin-up girl" of a Eucrite is?a numbered NWA, it has published GPS coordinates that show it was found in the country of?Western Sahara.?

I just received my copies of the Heritage Nature & Science Auction catalog.??The photography is stunning.??There are so many items and the images are so large, they had to make two separate catalogs:??one catalog for all of the gold nuggets, gemstones, and fine minerals -- and in the other, are the many meteorites.??

Unlike most of the more recent auctions in which the Lunar and Martian specimens are slices, there are some sizeable whole stones of planetary material here.

You may want to add this to your calendar:

2017 November 4 Nature & Science Signature Auction - Dallas??#5324

Although it pales in comparison to the hardcopy catalogue, there is an online-version for your convenience at this link:


I found it to be an educational read.??I hope you find it to be enjoyable.
