Allende Reference Powder


The Division of Meteorites can provide samples of homogenized powder of Allende (CV3 chondrite) for comparative analytical studies. Splits of 1g, 5g, 10g up to 20g are available.

Requests for powders can be made to either Tim McCoy or Linda Welzenbach in writing and should include a brief summary of the investigation, with specified amount and justification of that amount.
