Surface Markings of the Henbury Meteorites

Article metrics


DR. L. J. SPENCER, in describing the Henbury meteorites1, states: “The surface markingsin all cases appear to be the result of sculpturing by weathering processes. No clear evidence was detected that the original surface on any of the masses had been preserved.” Having examined nearly all the irons found at Henbury both by our parties from the Kyancutta Museum and by prospectors and others, I consider that Dr. Spencer's statement needs qualification.
