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 Pallasite grouplet called Eagle Station was found in the Oued Bourdim wadi in Morocco, and is one of only five known. This is a stunning pallasite with intriguing swathing kamacite and schreibersite, which produces a distinctly unique etch pattern. There was only a 79g stone which was cut and an 8g fragment that was acquired, so supplies are limited of this once in a lifetime space rock.
