Actually, the initial weight would need to be 112.5g if the current weight

Hi Tim,

My point is that Aziz is advertising a "90g Lodranite Breccia" for sale. I
asked simple questions that had nothing to do with the broad NWA
unclassified market. How does he know it is a "Lodranite"? What lab
classified it? Did he (Aziz) submit the proper type sample (18 grams in this

>> Hello Aziz,
>> I see you are offering what appear to be "classified" meteorites for
>> sale. You claim specific classification information like " 90g Lodranite
>> Breccia". What are the assigned NWA numbers and what laboratory did you
>> send the 18-gram type sample (20% of 90 grams) to in order to have this
>> classification? This is no place for self classifying! This is a typical
>> Moroccan practice to offer material they have as the same as other
>> "classified" material.
