Other possible locality names for Thika: Kilimambogo, Yatta, Kakuzi,

>From the University of Nairobi scientific note:

"He says already scientists have so far concluded that it has
components typical to those of other rocks on the earth's surface."

Well - you might not think much of this comment, but you'd think if
chondrules were evident it might be mentioned. Remembering, of course,
that rocks on Earth's surface are essentially all achondrites as long
as your aren't near meteorite collections ...


Kindest wishes

PS there was a rumor going around that this was going to be as
plentiful as Gao ! But never heard much about that either ;-( I
didn't see much besides the 11 pound meteorite that landed in the
Kiumwiri cornfield.
