Thanks for the heads-up Daniel! :)

This same seller is selling a wide variety of odd and rare artifacts.
This makes me question the authenticity of everything he offers.
Pieces of the Hindenberg? Metal from Apollo 11. Etc. If he's this
careless with his meteorite sources, then I wouldn't trust any of it.

Best regards,
