You know, Its the only reasonable explanation (I think), but I never see any
proff for this. The other question is if they made it just to make fraud or
they found this "industry slag" and turn it into a expensive meteorite just
for big and fast money.
I think noone care anymore about Shiro, so we never know what it is. I tryed
to talk with one of the finders but, Its other storry :)))
