Yeah, I've got some of this material, its gorgeous stuff, but what
exactly is it?, NWA 3118 or what? Loads of it is being sold as
'unclassified CV3'?, but it looks remarkably like a 3118 pairing,
especially if you sand it with a fine grit paper, (i.e not over polish
it) it reveals some wonderful features, in my view it's more exciting
than Allende.

To me this stuff, raises a little bit of an ethical dilemma however, I
have no problem with O'C's being sold as 'unclassified', but a CV3
really should be carefully studied imho, - should we really be selling
carbonaceous material without it being properly labeled and classified?
Who knows it might even be new material that holds important secrets....

Very Best,

Mark Ford
