One side perfectly triangular, another side with beautiful fine and rough structure caused by atmospheric turbulence, a third side with bundles of flow lines radiating from a small depression located at one edge.

Thanks for the advice, Anne - I'll do that immediately. I remember well a flight, long ago, from Kuala Lumpur to Cape Town, with a stop in Madagascar. Nothing than water, water, water; mare, mare, mare. And finally this small piece of (is-)land inmidst of aquarian eternity. This might have been the thoughts of the meteoroid, touching down. What a favor he did to us, landing on land. And these are extraordinary stones.

Thank you Matthias, and if you want to read more about it, go read my article in Meteorite-Times.com, where I quote Luc Labenne, the first person contacted about this new Fall.
