stone, weighing some 11.36kg, was found sometimes in the early 1960s in rangeland in
central Colorado while looking
for arrowheads. He brought it home but thinking that it was just an odd looking
rock he added it to his wife's rock garden. And it
stayed there until 1997 when Gary Curtiss, a Colorado geologist and meteorite collector
happened to go by and spotted it. He
immediately recognized it for what it was, bought it and had it classified by Alan Rubin
at UCLA. But then he kept most of it for himself!
Until very recently, when I finally convinced him to get a few slices cut and made
available ot collectors.
Clifford is an ordinary chondrite, type L6, Shock S3, Weathering W2, with some large
chondrules, metal blebs, and odd tiny vugs.
Whole list and collector-friendly prices
slices available, I could break one if there are requests.
At a very reasonable, customer-friendlly, non-gouging price.
