to clear things up - my 3.47kg is part of the 7.5kg written about in 2656
>NWA 725 has 3.8kg
>Dho 125 7.5kg
NWA 725 is likely to actually a winonaite. I had Open University do o
isotopse on some paired material and it plots right on top of nwa 1463

supply is irrelevant without demand. if we had debeers marketing meteorites
as THE way to show your love to a woman, I'd be one happy camper - that is
