It is strange to see that the 'unique crystal structure' has not yet been further described in press.


"Altho" is spelled "although" - thanks. --99.157.63.83 (talk) 16:01, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Seems rather "obscure" - only one nanometer scale grain observed. NASA blurb says it has a unique structure, but doesn't elaborate or even say what is unique about it. Mindat has very little and google returns lots of blog and other sites copying the NASA blurb - nothing on google scholar. I've removed the bio bit about the namesake - if he is notable write an article about him - one nanometer scale grain doesn't do it by itself. Vsmith (talk) 20:38, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

NASA has released a press photo so why don't upload it? Link:http://www.nasa.gov/centers/johnson/home/wassonite.html --Extra 999 (Contact me + contribs) 02:57, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
