TRADE with the Museum of Rio de Janeiro:
First of all, I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Mary-Elizabeth Zucolotto, Curator of the Meteorite Collection of the Museum of Natural History in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who was visiting the Tucson Show and had brought with her a great assortment of Brazilian meteorites. The language was definitely a problem (I do not speak Portuguese) but we did manage to negotiate a trade and even the consignment to me of a large assortment of specimens, which I am very happy to present to you now. (All those pieces were prepared and in some cases repaired in Brazil).

Sao Joao Nepomuceno: 
The very first mass of Sao Joao Nepomuceno was found before 1960 in Minas Gerais, an area of Brazil that has produced many meteorites. Later a local farmer was intrigued when a stone would not break under the wheels of his cart like all the other rocks, eventually, he stopped and picked the rock, it was no stone it was iron and he quickly realized that it was just like that other iron that had been found just a few miles away. He kept it for himself but eventually, the mayor of the village asked him to show it to a visiting engineer, who confirmed that it was a piece of the Sao Joao Nepomuceno meteorite, a third fragment was eventually found near-by, bringing the total weight to about 16kg. Most of it is now in the Museum of Natural History in Rio de Janeiro. It was been studied extensively and found to be similar to only one other meteorite, Steinbach, found in Germany in 1724; both are IVA-anomalous, iron meteorites very rich in pyroxene-tridymite inclusions.

However these are not the only specimens I acquired in Tucson!
Yes! I also did a couple very nice trades, and acquired some very interesting pieces, so I would like to present to you here a beautiful, large end-cut of Allende, probably half of a mass found rather soon after the fall since the crust is a beautiful, velvety black. Also an end cut of Esquel, you rarely see the outer surface of this meteorite! And a cute complete Plainview, and a small slice of Ensisheim, no introduction needed for this one. And from Alain Carion a few slices of Tafassasset that he had cut and polished very quickly before the Tucson Show out of a mass that somehow had survived the carjacking and fire that consumed his car and a good part of his collection; one side of the largest part slice is still black and clearly burned.

ASU “left-over” Irons: 
When I was at Arizona State University in October 2011, I spotted a bunch of small containers with pieces of iron meteorites in them, so I asked and was told that every now and then a chunk is cut off a large mass for lab. work, then some is used in the lab, and some is left-overs, and Yes, those were all “left-overs”! But what left-overs!!! What names!!! Ashfork, Gressk, Monahans, Silver Bell, Weaver Mountain……Total: over 20 ultra-rare irons. And what provenance! most of them came from the Nininger Collection, bought by ASU in 1960. Yes, all of them are small, or tiny pieces, but that makes them affordable!. Some are now gone, but there are still quite a few available. Please take a look at the list below.

Click on the name to see the picture. Weight and price of each piece is on the picture

Ainsworth Mass of 10.65kg found in 1907 by a boy in the sand besides a small creek, in Brown Co. Nebraska.

Ashfork Mass of 27 Kg found in north central Arizona in 1901.

Bella Roca Mass of 33kg found before 1888 in Sierra de San Francisco, near Santiago Papasquiero, Mexico. Acquired by H.A. Ward who cut it and then sold part of it to Nininger. From Nininger Collection, cut from ASU specimen #266. Medium Octah. IIIAB 3 pieces available

Chihuahua City In 1931 Nininger saw an unknown meteorite in Museum in Mexico City, he traced it back to the original discoverer near Chihuahua City and bought the main mass of 43kg.
