I do not keep a list of paired meteorites or possible paired meteorites.
Dhofar is no different then DaG or other like regions. I have traded more
in DaG so I could tell you some pairs in it. I have seen a few tables of
Dhofar's where you have several H5 or L6's that look a lot alike.
There have been pairing studies done in DaG, Roosvelt County and Anartica.
In all of these high collection places pairings were found to be pretty
common. Which I do not see as any problem and that was not a negative
Dhofar comment. Anyone thinking it was negative is free to send me all
their Roosevelt County meteorites. Should a pairing study be made, I think
the numbers say you will find Dhofar no different then other areas of
The naming rules in all these areas say pretty much, unless it fits
together, it gets a different name...or number as it is. We seem to have
changed this a little to, found within a few feet, as many of the DaG's with
the same number do not fit together.
On my website you will find I have many Dhofar, DaG and other like numbered
meteorites. However, if you check the gallery, you will see in my personal
collection, I avoid like classification meteorites from regions of high
