This is NOT the 1st carbonaceous chondrite find from Nevada - to the best of my knowledge,
this is Nevada's 2nd!!
(Nevada's 1st carbonaceous chondrite, a CV3, recognized by Nick Gessler,
was found by his son, Paul Gessler, on February 28, 2000)
The exterior of this carbonaceous chondrite has a relatively well-preserved relict-fusion crust. . . Click on image at left for a larger image.
