Hey Mike,?
Check out the Dar El Ghani 995 and examine the listed weights for the stone. Take into account the two photographed specimens in the encyclopedia of meteorites.?
Main mass of 46.5g and the bulletin says the type specimen weighs 11.2g . The tkw is listed as 56.12 This is a physical impossibility since the Pawn Shop shows a tkw of 57.62, more than the Meteoritical Bulletin shows exists, and that is not accounting for cutting loss and the 2 photographed specimens. Maybe the meteorites were purposely stripped of the provenance to hide something. Maybe they are stolen? Clearly someone is trying to get rid of them really fast. Buyers should be cautious, and the collection they are sourced from should be identified fast!!!

Have a great day,
John Higgins?
