TKW 40 grams.

Here is an unclassified, 50% crusted half individual. The seller who I bought it from in 2007 says its TKW is 40 grams. It has a glossy fusion crust with numerous contraction cracks and slightly resembles NWA 1109. I detected several minute, metallic patches and the fusion crust is porous in some places.

Hello Bernd: A Nice Meteorite. To me it still looks like a Howardite. Good luck. I hope you find a Martian soon. Best regards, Shams.

Bernd...nice specimen. NWA 1109 had many looks from a rusty brownish-yellow to a stunning, almost white appearance w/darker fragments. This specimen seems to have a range of the looks I've seen for NWA 1109.

Yes, Graham, I do. I don't think it is a howardite.
