Name of Nevada Meteorite: A recent find! (Most likely a "cold" find.) Meaning, there is no provisional-name, let alone a classification.

This find was made on 2014 May 31 (just 2 months before this webpage was published), so there is very little that can be said about this 15.7gram Ordinary Chondrite. This was the second of three small chondritic finds made that day. It is my contention that this whole-stone individual is probably an equilibrated H-chondrite.

This locality requires a more intensive and extensive search.
