it could be a good idea to include some pictures. However, it could be a
false good idea. Most meteorites are not spectacular and will not be
studied by anyone other than those who make the initial description. Who
is interested in ordinary rusty chondrites? What outstanding science
will be brought by these samples? Is it really important to complicate
the work of the classifiers for these samples? Who will agree to do this
work if the procedure becomes even more demanding?

>> I have started in Meteorites group discusion that every new classification should include few photos of specimen?.
> Excellent idea, Marcin!
> It exists for many mets from Antarctica already! Why not for all the newly classified mets? Including thin section photos!!!
