to be possibly meteoritic.  Reports of diffusion banding and other 
physical attributes suggest that it is an agate.  It may therefore be a 
pseudometeorite .

Kalahari 008 ..........................20.9818°S; 22.9766° E
Kalahari, Botswana
Found 1999, September
Lunar meteorite (feldspathic regolith breccia)
A single stone of 598g was found in September 1999 by an
anonymous finder in front of a sand dune within the Kalahar 
desert. The rock is an anorthositic breccia having typical clasts of
lunar highland breccias (e.g., feldspathic crystalline melt breccias,
granulitic lithologies, cataclastic anorthosites etc.) embedded
within a well-lithified matrix. An impact melt spherule indicates
that this rock derives from the regolith. The regolith origin is also
supported by the finding of solar wind implanted rare gases (L.
Schultz, Mainz). Classification and mineralogy (Anna Sokol and
Addi Bischoff, Mün): olivine, Fa63±18; pyroxene Fs42±10; plagioclase
An85-98. The shock stage of the rock is S4, the weathering
grade is W1. Oxygen isotopic composition: δ18O =
+6.52; δ17O = +3.32; ∆ = -0.07 (R. N. Clayton, Enrico Fermi
Institute, University of Chicago, Chicago, U.S.A.); concentrations
of selected elements (XRF or INAA; H. Palme, G. Weckwerth) in

Kalahari, Botswana
Found 1999, September
Lunar meteorite (basaltic fragmental breccia)
A single stone of about 13.5 kg was found in September 1999 by
an anonymous finder in front of a sand dune within the Kalahari
desert, roughly 50 m apart from Kalahari 001. The rock is
different to the Kalahari 001 anorthositic breccia. It has a heavily
brecciated texture and is basaltic in composition. The sample does
not contain solar wind implanted rare gases (L. Schultz, Mainz).
Classification and mineralogy (Anna Sokol and Addi Bischoff,
Mün): olivine, Fa50-99.9 (mostly Fa80-95); pyroxene is highly
variable (Fs22-67 En10-64 Wo6-41); plagioclase An86-96 (very few
plagioclase have more albitic composition, An70-80). The shock
stage of the rock is S4; the weathering grade is W1; however,
calcite veins are present. Oxygen isotopic composition: δ18O =
+6.87; δ17O = +3.45 (R. N. Clayton, Enrico Fermi Institute,
University of Chicago, Chicago, U.S.A.); concentrations of
selected elements (XRF or INAA; H. Palme, G. Weckwerth,
Institut für Mineralogie und Geochemie, Universität zu Köln,
Germany) in wt%: Al: 6.76; Mg: 5.14; Fe: 12.47; Ca: 7.66. Zr/Hf
= 30.2 and Nd/Ta= 17.4 (Münker, Institut für Mineralogie,

Fell 2003 November 2, 17:00 IST
Ordinary Chondrite (H4)
A single stone weighing 16.82 kg accompanied by a thundering
sound fell at Kasauli village (29° 35' N: 77° 35' E), Muuzaffarnagar
district, Uttar Pradesh, India creating an oval shaped crater.
The fall was witnessed by villagers of Kasauli. The meteorite was
retrieved by the Geological Survey of India (GSI). The single
mass of Kasauli meteorite is almost an oriented one and has a
plano-convex turtle-back shape with a truncated ellipsoidal outline.
The crust is grayish in colour, netted in nature. A few visible
chondrules are distinct on the surface. Minute shiny metallic
knobs are observed on the surface of the meteorite. Classification
(B.K.Chattopadhyay and A.P.Thapliyal, GSI): the meteorite is
essentially composed of olivine, pyroxene, abundant Fe-Ni metal,
troilite and devitrified glass. Olivine occurs in higher abundance
than pyroxene. A variety of well defined chondrules of varying
shape and sizes (from 0.1mm to 0.6mm) are present. The chondrule-
matrix boundary is sharp. The matrix is fine-grained recrys 
tallised. Fa content in olivine varies between 17.7 and 23.8 (n=6)
with an average of 20.9. Fs content in Opx varies from 8.5 to 31.5
(n=7) with an average of 20. No major shock features were observed
except loss of birefringence in olivine and pyroxene is
noticed, indicating very low degree of shock metamorphism (S2).
Specimen: type specimen and main mass: the single stone is at
GSI, Kolkata.

Kendrapara, Orissa, India
Fell 2003 September 27 1830 IST
Ordinary Chondrite (H4-5)
A brilliant fireball with intense greenish hue appeared in the
northern sky and progressed towards southern horizon and was
observed by a large number of people in the southern part of the
state of West Bengal and coastal Orissa. The event led to a
multiple fall along the coastal Orissa. Three pieces of meteorite
were retrieved by the Geological Survey of India (GSI) from
Subarnapur village (20° 32' 22'' N: 86° 42' E), East Suniti village
(20° 27' 30'' N: 86° 43' 15'' E) and West Suniti village (20° 27'
45'' N: 86° 42' 10'' E) in the Kendrapada district of Orissa; the
weights of the recovered fragments are 490.2 g, 719 g and 5460
g, respectively. The meteorite samples are dark on unbroken
surface and light coloured on broken surface where metals are
readily visible. Rusting is conspicuous on the broken surface and
may be attributed to the wet environment of fall. The main mass
of the meteorite has incomplete tabular polyhedral shape. Thin
section study (B. K. Chattopadhyay and A.P.Thapliyal, GSI)
shows Kendrapada meteorite is essentially composed of olivine,
pyroxene, abundant Fe-Ni metal, troilite and rare feldspar.
Chondrules of varying shape and sizes and texture are present
but are few in number and range in size from 0.15mm to 0.5mm.
Fa content in olivine varies between 18.2 and 19.6 (n = 22) with
an average Fa content of 18.8. Fs content in Opx varies from
14.4 to 17.4 (n = 17) with an average of 16.4. The matrix is finegrained
and moderately recrystallized. Shock stage is S2.
Specimens: type specimen 6kg, Geological Survey of India,
Calcutta ; some fragments are with Government of Orissa,
Bhubaneswar, India.
