Hi Jake and list.

I can not help you with this search, but it is VERY interesting
that Diogenites are mostly falls. But then again, you must
assume that there are many more to be discovered as finds.

I look at the falls and finds in Canada, on a national map, &
I know that there are hundreds of unknown finds! This does
call for a meteorite wake!

Sad in Canada,
Roman Jirasek

   Hello All: Below is the complete list of Diogenites that are
non-antarctic. I am looking for ANY amount of material on all, except
Bilanga, and Tatahouine (which I have PLENTY of at this time). Anyone that
can direct me, please email me off-list. I am looking for non-institutional
material at this time (no museum trades etc). I would note that it is
INTERESTING that ALL except one are FALLS! Thank you and Happy Holiday! Jake
