Here is the write up by Dr Carl Agee at the University of New Mexico.
Slaton (Iron) (FC-001)
Lubbock County, Texas, USA
Coordinates: 37 25′ 19.1″ N, 122 05′ 06″ W
Iron meteorite (IIAB)
TKW: 6 kg
History: This meteorite was found at Cade Farm on Union Rd., west of Slaton, TX, by H.M. Cade reportedly sometime in the 1940’s when he was plowing his cotton field. This is the same farm and the same finder as Slaton (L4). Mr Cade would always challenge his grand children to see if they could pick up this meteorite. It sat on the fireplace mantel and was passed down the family tree and Frank Carroll purchased it from the grandson in August of 2013.
Physical characteristics: Single iron mass, approximately 25x15x12 cm, with a centered, large rounded depression, oxidized exterior with some exfoliation, saw cut reveals bright metallic interior with a few small weathering cracks or oxidized grain boundaries.
Petrography: (C. Agee, UNM) This iron meteorite is dominated by kamacite (~99%) with minor amounts of schreibersite and taenite. Schreibersite often occurs as isolated en echelon veinlets 10-200 um wide, up to ~1 mm long. Taenite often occurs as isolated skeletal inclusions 10-200 um wide, up to 1mm long, within host kamacite. No troilite or silicates observed.
Mineral compositions and Geochemistry: (C. Agee, UNM) Bulk composition, ICPMS: Ni 5.7 wt%, Co 0.40 wt%, Cu 88 ppm, Ir 68 ppm, W 180 ppm, Ga 370 ppm, Ge 84 ppm. Kamacite, EMPA, focused beam: Fe 94.3±1.8 wt%, Ni 6.1±0.4 wt%, Co 0.48±0.03 wt%, W 340±170 ppm, Cu Classification: Iron meteorite (IIAB)
Specimens: 24 g on deposit at UNM, Frank Carroll holds the main mass.
