More on NWA 7325

Hey Space Placers!

Here is a news release that I know you will enjoy. Many of you have been fascinated, as have I, with the green meteorite NWA 7325 - a possible space rock from Mercury. 

The odd ball space rock was the subject of discussion at the recent 44th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. How the meteorite was found, purchased and sent to Washington University at St Louis for preliminary testing, is a great read. As is the scientific discussion about the green space rock.  

More testing needs to be done so answers can be found but I am sure that the origin of NWA 7325 will be found. Oh, and we find out why the rock is green
