Looking at similar material...NWA 4799 was once an Aubrite and got reclassified as an EH Melt...interesting, like Al Haggounia 001 as finally an EL Melt. No metal left (weathering) in this NWA 15237 specimen doesn't allow for a determination of Aubrite or other.

This "potential" Aubrite looks similar to NWA 5885 and NWA 6675...though even more weathered than those two.
