Hi Paul and all,

The blue halide crystals were found early on in Zag. I believe they
were found in other meteorites (Monahans, Tx?) but information has a
way of finding it's way back into the public eye. Don't have
information handy right now but thought I would comment.

  Yes, they were packed out by camel and the camel sweat story was a
part of the story. Perhaps ET will comment as he brought out a number
of specimens from this fall in 1998.
