3 new Meteorites from Texas:
Lamesa (b), Tahoka and Wellman F

 

 

Northern Texas,
The Panhandle of Texas.
An area rich in meteorites, it feels  like every town is named after a meteorite.
And they are still being found, 3 more to add to the list:
Tahoka, Lamesa (b) and one more Wellman!.

 

 

 

First stop, Lamesa, where a farmer found an "odd" rock some 20 years ago in a cotton field.
Because of its size and shape, he kept it and it has been a very good bookend ever since.
But now his wife wants it out, so here it is: a bit over 3 pounds on the kitchen scale,
Inside it is black, with lots of metal. It has been officially  classified as an H4, and it is now available (see below).

 

 

 

Back on the road through  rain and mud to Tahoka, where an 88 years farmer has a 7.6 kilos "doorstop" he found while weeding his fields some 10 years ago.  He is only willing to sell half of it, and he wants the other half cut in thirds for his 3 daughters. 

Done!   Here is the half.

It is a weathered stony, with a lot less metal and odd inclusions.
It has now been officially classified as L5, and is available. (see below).
 

 

And finally Wellman, where 5 different meteorites have already been found.
This new one was plowed up by a cotton farmer in 1999, and kept in his garage.
Good thing!   this 37 pounds monster is a NEW Wellman!  Wellman F, now classified as a H3.5 unequilibrated.
And available, but only one slice left!!!
