Hi Mike, all,

Those H-melts almost seem like they are only partially classified. "Most"
IMB usually have a petrologic grade associated with them as there is often a
part of the meteorite that isn't completely melted.

For example; NWA 7626 mentioned in the new updates says: "The chondritic
portion shows an unequilibrated texture...". This makes me think it should
be something like H3-IMB or H4-IMB etc. Same principle for NWA 7627 which
also mentions a "Chondritic portion".

H-IMB are not that rare. Adam Bates' NWA 7534 is a beautiful and very recent
example of one such meteorite. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/281079330057)

Gao, Chergach and DHO 010 are other H examples that immediately spring to

Hi Bulletin Watchers,

Three new approvals today. Two of them are H-melts - the first from
outside Antarctica.
