John and List,

I do not see why you are making such an example out of this because it
happens all of the time but if any of you felt you were somehow mislead than
I would be happy to give you a full refund. You only have to look at any
dealers' websites to see the same problem with pairings. Nobody can rightly
state proper weights when pairings are involved. It all depends on the
honesty of the persons reporting the weight. I described 22 fossils and 18
meteorites in the last seven days and went on notes provided to me by NAU on
this one. I did not have the time to go digging through pairing status' on
provisional meteorites even though this information was partially publicly
available and posts had been made to the List previously to this.

I do not think a dealer out there knows how much of any given meteorite is
available from NWA when pairings are involved. I cannot understand why
somebody would only claim part of a stone when getting it classified. No
matter, I will look into this when I find more time. No scientists have
determined a pairing status on NWA 2989 so as I stated I do not know what
else is out there. I was not trying to mislead anybody, that is not how I
operate. In any case, NWA 2989 is a gorgeous new Acapulcoite and I am sure
it will be enjoyed by all of those who purchased any.

Kind Regards,
