Due to the backlog and delay in getting classifications, we must now show images of Nevada Meteorite finds that are still awaiting classification and still awaiting formal approval of their names. This web page will be revised when the classification and name are formally approved by the Nomenclature Committee of the Meteoritical Society.

(In "close-up" image, Scale is 1 centimeter cube.)

For Reference:
This find will be included in the LIST of *Known* NEVADA METEORITES

Would you like to see your image displayed here? Feel free to submit your image to the editor's email address below. Any and all submissions of Nevada meteorite images are welcome.

The next Picture of the "Day": will be next month.
