You have all seen the meteorite that I got from a Moroccan fossil dealer at
the Denver mineral show last september who bought it from a Nomad who
searched with his family and found 163 pounds of it in the KemKem desert. I
have been selling it unclassified for $185 a kilo.
It is now classified (By the Russian Academy of Sciences).
H4, Fa of olivine - 17,5 mol %
Fs of pyroxene 17,1
Weathered grade is W2 (W3 at places)
Shock stage is S2
The Name NWA267 will now change from being a "provesional" name and will
become official and should be listed in the next meteoritical bulletin.
Since it is now classified, an H4, (and since I have it half sold before it
got classified) I guess that I should raise the price on it. However, as I
am raising cash for Tucson right now so for today only it is still $185 a
Most pieces are small (10 - 40 grams) and none have crust.
Add $10 a kilo postage
I can send billpoint invoices if you wish to pay with a credit card
(Visa/Mastercard). Paypal would be prefered since I will get the cash before
I go to Tucson (You cant have to big of a budget for Tucson). I will pay the
postage if you pay with paypal today.
I have a thin section of this meteorite now on ebay for those who are
interested. I will be getting more thin sections made of this meteorite and
I will be sending some samples off on monday to my cutter and it takes 4 to
5 weeks to get the thin sections made. You can pre-order thin sections of
NWA267 today for delivery in 4 to 5 weeks for only $35. (Now thats a deal)
