Matteo, thank you for the link. An interesting detail with regard to NWA 725's
status as a winonaite or an acapulcoite might be this conclusion by the authors
at the end of the paper:

"... the Cr2O3 contents of high-Ca pyroxenes, (1.56 - 1.85 wt. %), are, according
to [5], in good agreement with those displayed by acapulcoite meteorites, since
winonaites exhibit much lower contents (around 0.2 wt. %)."

Best wishes,
