IMHO much more - if you bought nwa 725 as an acapulcoite you won the lottery
as there is much less winonaite avalible to the collecting public - than
there is acapulcoite - and this is doubly true for fresh winonaite material
like the 725 and paired 725 material. Whereas for the acapulcoites there is
plenty of nwa 125 and the 2656 / paired 2656 material floating around

FWIW there has been no official change int he classification, this has been
the result of some sluething between David and myself - mostly myself if
anyone wants to lay blaime for a change in status :)

>>NWA 725 is likely to actually be a winonaite. I had Open University do
>>O isotope on some paired material and it plots right on top of nwa 1463
