A highly shocked diogenite weighing 185g was acquired from a Moroccan dealer in September 2014. The stone was covered in caliche and dirt, but after ultrasonic cleaning, a frothy texture was observed over portions of the stone's rind. After cutting, the slices revealed incredible vesiculation of the matrix, similar to Ibitira. The meteorite is part of a larger 11kg stone and will be officially classified soon.
A new feldspathic regolithic breccia lunar meteorite was acquired from a Moroccan dealer in September 2014, consisting of many small individuals. The stones have been preliminarily confirmed by Dr Tony Irving, and Dr Randy Korotev is working on trace element analysis to determine pairings, if any. Some slices, endcuts and individuals have been offered on ebay for a limited time pre sale pricing.
