Dear fellow listees,
After more than a year away from ebay, meteoriteshow is back.
Some of you have already seen the first week's auctions that are porposed

meteorites that could come and enrich your collection:
The link to reach the whole items listed is:
Here are now the details:

7/ METEORITE: SAH 02501 EUC - 1.9g partslice : This is a partslice of a rare
type of Eucrite (see description).
I do not provide more details about these meteorites in that post as you
will find all necessary information in the announcements. Fom now on,
meteoriteshow will propose again meteorites every weeks on ebay and i hope
that you will find the choice large enough. I am currently based in Accra,
Ghana, but the meteorites are still being shipped from France, where they
are all located. So do not worry about shipment's safety, which will remain
the same as usual.
Just to give a short explanation about my presence in Ghana, i have decided
to go back to this West African country where i had spent 2 years as a
French volunteer, teaching mechanical engineering. This was my very first
contact with the African continent and my whole life got oriented by this
fantastic experience. Therefore i always wanted to come back here and set up
a tour agency in order to give a chance to other people to discover this
The tour egency is now set up and named ABACAR Ltd. and i am planning to
organize a tour focused on the Bosumtwi crater. Should this appear to be a
good idea to some of you, you can e-mail me any comment to my e-mail
address, so that i can do it the best way as possible.
Setting up a business in Africa is not an easy challenge and it takes a lot
of time, this is why i have not been very active with meteorites all those
past months. But i must admit that i am a meteorites' adict and now on my
Just one last information (sorry if it is not directly meteorites'
oriented); there is a website about my tour agency, that can be seen at
www.abacar-tours.com. It is not completely finished but will already give
some first idea of the place where i now live, to those of you who are
Thanks for checking my auctions on ebay and for bidding of course!!!
Best wishes to all of you,
