a.Researchers found a brand new mineral Edscottite tucked in a tiny meteorite. It’s never been seen in nature before. It is found within the Wedderburn meteorite located in 1951 and kept in Museums Victoria in Australia. It is one phase of iron carbide formed while cooling from high temperature meteorite. Normally it forms while smelting the iron but not naturally occurring. It is named as Edscottite mineral after the Cosmochemist Ed.R.D.Scott, meteorite researcher who identified in 1971. So far it has not been reported occurring in nature until now. With the help of recently developed technological advance, the detailed study of the characterization of this mineral found in meteorite has brought out this natural occurring Edscottite mineral.
