found by F. Beroud and C. Boucher. Mineralogy and classification
(B. Devouard and J.-L. Devidal, UBP; B. Zanda and M. Denise,
MNHNP): large chondrules (~ 1 mm in diameter), several small
CAIs, plus a very large (10 mm) irregular, zoned one. Mean olivine,
Fa16.3 (range Fa0.6-56.5); mean low-Ca pyroxene, Fs16.0 (range Fs0.8-
60.2); shock stage, S3; weathering grade, W2/3. Specimens: type

(B. Devouard and J.-L. Devidal, UBP; B. Zanda and M. Denise,
MNHNP): matrix is abundant, and chondrules display large finegrained
rims; metal is virtually absent except for small grains inside
chondrules; hydrated phases characteristic of CM2 chondrites, including
Fe-rich serpentine and tochilinite (PCPs), are ubiquitous
within the matrix. Mean olivine, Fa9.5 (range Fa0.7-45.4); mean low-Ca
pyroxene, Fs5.4 (range Fs1.4-20.9). Weathering grade, W0. Specimens:
main mass with finders; type specimen, 22.6 g, MNHNP.

489 g was found by F. Beroud and C. Boucher. Mineralogy and
classification (B. Devouard and J.-L. Devidal, UBP; B. Zanda and
M. Denise, MNHNP): sharply defined chondrules from 0.1 to 0.3
mm and rare metal grains; olivine, mean Fa23.2 (range Fa0.7-81.7), low-
Ca pyroxene, mean Fs7.4 (range Fs1.1-37.6), W2. Specimens: type
specimen, 25.4 g, MNHNP; main mass with finders.

Acfer 360.................................. 27°29' N, 3°46' E
Algeria
Found 2002, November 17
Achondrite (ureilite)
A 68 g stone was found in the Acfer region, Algerian Sahara.
Mineralogy and classification (E.-M. Chamorro, K. Pistre, P.
Beck, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, ENSL, P. Grandjean,
Université Claude Bernard, Lyon 1): typical ureilite texture, mmsized
crystals, triple juctions and curved intergranular boundaries
are observed. The mineral composition is olivine (Fo83) 90 vol.
%, pigeonite (En75Wo8) 8 vol.% and interstitial carbonaceous
material 2 vol.%. Olivine often contains metal inclusions, and
pigeonite sometimes includes rounded olivine grains. Metal-rich
rims surround silicate grain boundaries. Flakes of dark carbonaceous
material consist of diamonds in the form of small grains
within graphite, as revealed by Raman spectroscopy. Weathering
grade appears to be minor. Specimens: main mass, F. Beroud and
C. Boucher; type specimen 14 g, ENSL.

Fell 2002 February
Achondrite (monomict basaltic eucrite)
A 252 g stone with black shiny fusion crust was found on March
22 in the roof of a building, in a hole in the insulating material.
Water was first observed leaking from the ceiling inside the
building at 8:30 am on March 18, 2002. The stone had broken
into 2 fragments (238.9 g and 13 g) upon impact. Taking into
account the local amount of rainfall in the previous days, the
absorption of water by the porous insulating material and the
distance between the hole in the roof and the leak in the ceiling,
leads to an estimate that the fall took place between February 3
and February 14. Mineralogy and classification (M. Bourot-
Denise, MNHNP): low-Ca pyroxene En36Wo3 with lamellae of
high-Ca pyroxene En29.5Wo42.5, and laths of plagioclase An90;

Al Mahbas ..................................N 27, 14, 25.7 by W008,50,49.5.  
         This meteorite is only the 3rd Pallasite from Northwest Africa. 
It is from Al Mahbas, Western Sahara, found in august 2004. 
A nomad found a large piece weighing several kilos surrounded by a lot of shale pieces. 
He carried the meteorite for a few miles, 
but got tired and hid it under a small tree in a wadi (creek bed). 
He can not remember the place, so that piece is lost! 

Words from Mike Farmer who actually recovered specimens from the site.
I went to the find site last week, (Nov 27th-Dec 3rd). 
The exact GPS location of the center of the find site is N 27, 14, 25.7 by W008,50,49.5.
Anyone who goes to this site should find small pieces, but be warned,
the site is in a closed military zone, barely 3 miles from the Algerian border. 
I found many small pieces, but I only had one hour to search before
the Moroccan military chased us from the area.

Please note, this is a very dangerous area. It lies in Western Sahara,
which Morocco annexed against the will of the people of that country.
There is a group named the Polisario who have been fighting in this area
for decades against Morocco. The borders of Algeria and Mauritania are
both very close (Algeria with within sight) and this meteorite is located
in a heavily mined, closed military zone. No-one but the local nomads and
military are allowed there, we snuck in, but were chased and nearly
arrested for being there. It is not a safe place.

This is a gorgeous Pallasite, several pieces were complete individuals,
with black fusion crust and nice fresh metal, but around the hole where
the largest piece was found are many shale pieces and loose olivine crystals.
These are all polished olivine crystals and shale fragments. 
To my knowledge, only 4 small metallic individuals are known,
all weighing from 16 grams to 68 grams only.
The largest piece ~2-5 kilos has been lost in the sand when hidden by the finder.
A search is underway with a metal detector I sold to the Moroccans. 
The meteorite is under classification,
but I'll go ahead and offer these up now since the holidays are here.

A mass of 1.108kg was found.Recently another 56kg specimen found. 
Analysis, 11-95 %Ni, 17.2 ppm.Ga, 15.7 ppm.Ge, 0.16 ppm.Ir.
A recent find of this 128 pound nickel iron meteorite (pictured), most likely
formed the main mass of the Anoka Meteor Impact, thousands of years ago. 
The first meteorite was a individual specimen weighing 2.5 pounds, 
ploughed up by a farmer very close to an old school house near Anoka, 
Minnesota. It was the only known meteorite from this area until now.
Al Stegora, of Champlin Minnesota, found this 128 pound meteorite in 1983 
while digging a drain excavation near his home. Unknown to Al, 
this chunk of iron was unearthed less than five miles from where 
the first 2.5 pound meteorite had been found years ago. 

Al's massive 128 pound iron was unearthed with a backhoe, 
but went unnoticed until Al re-filled the ditch. Al noticed this was a 
unusual rock due to it's weight. He moved the strange iron rock to his doorstep, 
but later decided to put in his garage for safe keeping. 
There, it became a much talked about conversational piece. 
Some years passed before Al decided to find out what this strange looking 
chunk of iron really was. Al removed a small piece with a metal cutting saw, 
and sent it to the University of Minnesota where it was evaluated. 
As was suspected, it turned out to be a Nickel Iron Meteorite, possibly connected 
to the original Anoka Meteorite find of 1961. 

Once confirmed as a actual meteorite and part of the 1961 find, Al began receiving 
offers from all over the world. Al decided to sell the Meteorite to the University of  
Minnesota where it was to be displayed in the university collection of meteorites. 
However, the meteorite was sliced into sections and divided between four other 
Universities for further study and display. One small 200 gram piece was set aside for Al. 
As far as we know, Al Stegora is the only private individual to own a piece of the Anoka Meteorite.
It has come to our attention that several pieces of iron were recently unearthed on a 
commercial building site in close proximity to the original find. 
There may be tons of this material out there.

Fell 2004 Jun 12, 9:00
Stone ( yet to be classified )
A solid black lump that crashed into an Auckland family's living room .
Experts have confirmed it is the ninth meteorite to be found in New Zealand.
It was a fairly normal Saturday morning at the Archer household 
until the rock made an appearance at around 9:00.
"There was just a huge explosion and we looked around 
and there was just dust everywhere," says Brenda Archer.
What they didn't expect to find was a very hot rock.
"I don't know what to make of it, it's unbelievable. 
I'm just glad no one was sitting on the couch because 
they just would have got absolutely crowned," she says.
The rock weighs in at 1.3 kilograms. 
And Joel Schiff of Auckland University says the story adds value to the find.
"Falling through a roof is really an exceptional event that rarely happens, 
and this is a beautiful large specimen."
It is likely to be named the Ellerslie meteorite after the suburb it was found in.
