Squaw Creek (Somervell County) Anomalous IIAB (iron) Found without details

This meteorite contains only 5.5% nickel but shows no Neumann lines when etched. In fact, when a polished face is acid etched it reveals a unique texture unlike most any meteorite you will have seen before. There are none of the usual Widmanstatten bands, instead the whole surface reveals a "mosaic" of ~3,4&5mm patches and some areas of very fine, grouped together "blobs" of nickel-iron!! Words can't explain - an extremely interesting meteorite indeed!
