That is aweful. John, can you include specific individual weights? This
would help ID any that surface.

Dear Meteorite Collectors and Dealers,

On December 24, 2012 at about 3 AM local time, the Pisgah Astronomical
Research Institute in western North Carolina was broken in to and well
over 100 meteorites were taken.
Many of these meteorites were bought from list members and list
dealers over the past 15 + years. Many of them are going to be
difficult to replace. There?s a reward offered for the recovery of
these meteorites.
I have pictures, more information and a list of some of the meteorites
on the website -


 PLEASE take a look.
 I will be adding to this list and posting new information as it
becomes available.

There are several large multi kilo iron meteorites that were also
taken. I will post information about them as I get it compiled.

If anyone has any information or are offered any of these meteorites,
please contact Dave Clavier at PARI or me. All information will be
kept confidential.

Thank you,

John Sinclair
