Yucca Buck Mountain, H3-6 Chondrite Breccia, Micromount

$5.00

Several different meteorites have been recovered and classified out of the Franconia area of the Mojave Desert in Arizona. Since then, several other distinctly-different types of meteorite have been found there, representing many separate falls. The most common Franconia find is the H5 chondrite whose name is associated with this strewnfield. Other named finds from this same strewnfield include the so-called "Franconia irons", Sacramento Wash, Yucca, Buck Mountains, and Palo Verde Mine. Due to the unusually-concentrated number of different find types in this same strewnfield, Franconia and it's environs are the subject of ongoing scientific scrutiny. The specimens being offered here are of the H3-6 (Buck Mountains) variety.
