Collections & Research Committee member Terry Boudreaux donated a very unusual meteorite specimen to The Field Museum’s Robert A. Pritzker Center for Meteoritics and Polar Studies.  The meteorite is named NWA 5492 after northwest Africa where it was found.  Its petrology and chemical composition are very different compared to other meteorites and it cannot be classified with the existing scheme.
