dc.description.transcription[15] FORT STOCKTON, PECOS COUNTY, TEXAS This beautiful iron meteorite, found about 1952 by Charles Eldred, was well preserved by the dry climate. The delicate threads of iron on one edge are the flow lines of the final melted surface. One side (uppermost in the ground?) has weathered to show internal bands of nickel-iron.
