Nourddine, list, I agree with you. Thank you for your wisdom. I too have been needlessly dragged through the coals on this list. It has been proven off-list that the bad mouthing I was given was totally misguided but, It matters not. The truth is , these actors have caused great harm to this

I cannot better articulate what has been said by Dr Shea in his two earlier responses on this topic. It is not my nature to respond to such debates, but I do not feel justice is being served here. Repeating what John S said, I do not pretend to have the details of what happened with John

Quite the Witch hunt “brewing” here... I won’t pretend to have all the information about everyone’s issues with this seller, but if there’s a legit gripe between two IMCA members concerning something as sincere as fraud, then the metlist is certainly not the place to deal with it. Cheers,

I would like to know how this person got to be an IMCA member, and more importantly how and why he still remains one after all these incidences of misrepresentation and fraud have occurred? Sent from Gary's iPhone > On Mar 13, 2018, at 3:08 AM, John higgins via Meteorite-list >

Last time I checked the wholesale price of Black Beauty has always stayed above $1000 per gram, any rumors of a stone being sold as Black Beauty for $100 is likely a fake, just a fantasy. And I have proven in the past that this seller in question is self pairing and making illegimitate claims.

I have bought from the seller in question numerous times. He is very reliable, after at least a dozen transactions... As to whether or not people are willing to buy specimens that cost as much as Black Beauty under the advertisement of a probable pairing, it is entirely up to the buyer. This

List, Interesting Ebay listing. The seller shows an IMCA number 5743 and guarantees authenticity with a certificate. Is that OK with the IMCA if a lab has not certified it? Carl -- Love & Life Adam Hupe via Meteorite-list wrote: > It looks like the

It looks like the Moroccans are letting out a little bit at time of this one. Let a small amount out, find out what it is and what it goes for on the market, and then slowly release all of the pairings. The only exception is if multiple parties in Morocco get a hold of the same material, at
