I don't know for sure on that, but I did buy a few arrowheads supposed to be
from Morocco from an ebay meteorite dealer once (they were cheap, bought them on
impulse when I was buying some meteorites). I'm no expert on arrowheads, but to
me they looked like the mass-produced modern crap that you can buy for 25 cents
each various places (probably all have encountered them at mineral shows). Or I
could be wrong and they could be real.

I also have an NWA that looks almost like somebody tried to shape it into a
tool, but then again could just be broken that way (and with no way to know for
sure either way).
