G'day Martin & Bernhard,

I purchased a 187.80g Half Stone from a dealer's eBay auction with the
Labenne number "00225" written on it. Like yourself, when I later received
the piece and did some searching on the number I too realised that it had
been classified as an EL6. However, "Sahara 00225" has a TKW of just 64g. I
don't think my piece is an E chondrite. From what I could understand after
enquiring to the Labennes is that my meteorite is "00225" and not "Sahara
00225". Maybe Luc could add something more. Keep in mind that my piece is a
half stone meaning that it could be (minutely) possible there is another
150g-200g out there. I'll try and get some photos up on my site of my piece.

  Hola list,
  Bernhard asked me to forward his mail, as he comes not through like
  other members (neither with Html nor text formate).


  Hi there,

  I have recently checked all my meteorites against sources on the
  internet regarding the classes I have written down for them. Everything
  is fine, with the exception of two meteorites from the SAH bunch:

  1) SAH 99150 - I have no information about this one.

  2) SAH 00225 - this is pretty strange. I bought a 4g part slice from
  Michael Farmer back in October 2003. As far as I remember, it was sold
  as unclassified back then (for me, it looks like an ordinary chondrite).
  Now I have found a MetBull from 2001, calling SAH 00225 an enstatite
  chondrite. Most likely, my piece of SAH 00225 isn't 00225 at all, Has
  anyone a photo of a piece of this meteorite so I can compare mine?
  Furthermore, what was the meteorite Michael sold as 00225 last year? Did
  I swap numbers? Michael, do you still remember what you sold back then
  or do you still own something from this meteorite?

  Your help is very much appreciated.

  A last question: does anyone know what the outcome of the classification
  of NWA 1685 is? I still have it listed as "unclassified".
