Hello All,

When I had a 462-gram NWA individual (purchased from Dean B. on October 25, 2004)
classified by Prof. Addi Bischoff, he even sent me a photo showing the the different
slices and endcuts. Each (!) of them was labeled with "Pauli", "D?nnschliffe" [thin
sections] and "IfP M?nster". Of course the photo still exists in case someone cares to
host it. Not a single gram got lost. It turned out to be an H3-5 (NWA 3346, H3-5; S2; W2)
chondrite obviously with some very interesting inclusions because Prof. Bischoff wrote:

"...a very interesting fragment that I would like to measure before ..."

99.3 grams remained at Muenster University - more than the usual amount - because
I also got a thin section without having to pay for it and the deal was to donate more
than the usual amount of meteoritic material of that H chondrite as a compensation.

Oddly enough, this meteorite has slipped through the grates of the Met.Bull. because
it is still listed as "Provisional" in the Meteoritical Bulletin.

Best wishes,
