Meteorites and Tektites
Collections include meteorites acquired during the early geological surveys of the State of Texas, and those added since that time for both research or display. Especially prominent are the collections from the Works Progress Administration (WPA) project at the Odessa impact site, directed by E.H. Sellards and overseen in the field by Glen L. Evans.
The Catalogue of Meteorites is the database of all meteorite falls and finds. It is published by the Natural History Museum in London, UK.
If you search that database for the Concho meteorite shown here you can find details about the meteorite.
