Sulphur Springs Draw

Terry County, Texas, USA

Found September 20, 1990

Stone. Ordinary chondrite (H5)

A stone of 1892 g was found while plowing a grainfield by A. Berryhill. It is highly weathered and shows almost no free metal. Classification and analysis, olivine Fa19.4, A. L. Graham, The Natural History Museum, London SW7 5BD, UK. Within a distance of 25 km four other chondrites were found: Wellman (a), (b), (d), and Brownfield (b). A direct comparison of characteristics of crust, matrix, free metal and general weathering showed Sulphur Springs Draw to be different from all of them. Information and main mass, Terry E. Schmidt, Tiara Observatory, P. O. Box 1059, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80901, USA.
