Holbrook Trip

For Sale

     I just made my 4th stop in Holbrook looking for meteorites.  The first three were quick in and outs with a total of 15 hours looking.  This time I decided to spend a whole day.   I left Flagstaff at 4:20 am and was at the strewn field by 6:00 am.  Weather was great until about 8:30 when the sun found it's way out from behind the clouds.  After that I got fried.  After another 5 1/2 hours at 11:35am  22 July 2001 I finally found my first Holbrook meteorite.  It weighs in at a whopping 2.16 grams, about 1 gram for every 10 hours I had spend looking for it.  It is a lovely piece with crust as fresh as any recent fall.

2.16 Grams and about 80-85% fresh crust
