Lots of Buchwald references here and lots of alternate names.

Anne writes:
Hexahedrite. Cut from ASU specimen #387.1

Mass of 19kg found before 1931 in Antofagasta province, Chile, sold by the finder to the Smithsonian. Examined by Nininger (1939), Wasson (1968) and later Buchwald who concluded it is similar to other hexahedrites found in North Chile.
