1917 TULIA (b) L6 Meteorite from Texas .80g
.80 gram part slice of Tulia (b), an interesting L6 chondrite found in Swisher County, Texas, USA in 1917. A Total Known Weight (TKW) of only 4.4 kilograms was at coordinates 34° 32'N, 101° 42'W. There is a little bit of confusion in regards to TKW because unpaired meteorites have been found in the same vicinity. I suspect the TKW is somewhat less than the recorded amount because of the perplexity of the situation. Weathering and shock level data were not included in the official classification. This specimen comes with an identification card from The Hupé Collection.
