You can have the geology portfolio. --Old Dickens 13:23, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Other books?

In what books are Chrodite mentioned, Moving Pictures yes but then?

On the topoic of alternate spelling: Googling Chrondite brings up a number of hits, some use the spelling Chondite, which is what wikipedia uses. Websters dictionary (the complete edition) uses Chondite; I only have the abridged Oxford Modern, could someone with a complete British dictionary look upp the spelling. On the other hand, the wikipedia entry is a bit short and have been tagged with the suggestion that the Spanish counterpart, marked with ab Estrella, should be wholly translated. Them Spaniards spell it Condrite. And we Swedes spell it Kondrit. --Iron Hippo 09:54, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

The Shorter Oxford lists chondrite: a stony meteorite containing chondrules. No chrondite. A Star Trek mission, however, once discovered chrondite. This seems a pretty likely derivation. There is also reference to chrondite elsewhere. I defer to everybody on "rocks". --Old Dickens 18:52, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
