This meteorite Sayh al Uhaymir 001 was found on March 16, 2000 in Oman. It was classified as an L4/5 stone chondrite with a stock rating of 2 and a weathering grade of 1. (Fa mol % 24.7 Fs mol % 21.4.) These pieces were recovered by me in Nov 2003. They are the nicest of the SAU001 pieces I recovered. A few pieces have a real nice golden tone on them, possibly frosted by a melting inclusion during the fall.
