Dear Jeff,

Further to your post about impact melts to the Meteorite-List, we have the pleasure to come back to you.
We are meteorite hunters and organized several expeditions to the Sahara desert since December 2001 (see our article in the latest issue of Meteorite magazine: "New French hunters on the right track", Feb. 2004).
During our third expedition in November 2002, we found a nice small impact melt of an L chondrite - tkw: 50g. Its provisional name - that we gave when we found it - is BB313. It has been studied and classified by ENS-Lyon (France) and was voted during the latest meeting of the Nommenclature Committee this month. Therefore, it should appear in the next issue of the MB#88 and named Tanezrouft 067. You can have a look at the data sheet of this meteorite on our website, using the link hereunder:
You can download any picture or enlargement available from this page, but I send you attached two pictures of the cut section, before and after polishing.
We would appreciate if you can mention a link to our website (www.meteoriteshow.com) and would of course in return add your own website to our links page.
We thank you for your contribution and look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards

Frederic Beroud & Christophe Boucher

  G'day List,

  I am currently building an information page on impact melts for my site. I would very much appreciate any photos from collectors and dealers that I could use on this page. Photos clearly showing melt pockets and veins, etc would be great. Of course all credit will be given for any images used.
