More stolen meteorites

Recommended Posts

G'Day Everyone

From Gary


Sometime between January 27 and March 3, a person or persons entered my office at the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy at 640 North A'ohoku Place, Hilo, Hawaii and removed meteorites from within it. The items were important research specimens and teaching tools I use in education and public outreach with our young people of Hawai'i.

The specimens stolen are:

Sikhote Alin iron IIAB 633g individual

Sikhote Alin iron IIAB 219g individual

Sikhote Alin iron IIAB 209g individual

Sikhote Alin iron IIAB 268g shrapnel

Campo del Cielo iron IAB 1.6kg individual

La Criolla L6 231g endcut

NWA 788 240g endcut

NWA 2690 Euc 243g endcut

NWA 2932 Mes 50g endcut

NWA 6928 Dio 15g endcut

NWA 7131 CM2 10g endcut

most can be seen on this webpage. http://bigkahuna-meteorites.com/StolenMets.html

It is truly sad that through this person's actions, he robs not just me but all the keiki of Hawai'i, from the use of and knowledge gained from these invaluable tools of science. Please contact me if any of these meteorites are offered to you or if you see them under any circumstances.

Aloha Gary,

The Islands are VERY small and people in the "know" will be able to recognize them. Plus Karma is strong on the Big Island and I believe that the thief will have nothing but bad luck until these rocks are returned or found. Good luck getting them back.

Aloha and stay well,

Stan aka Kaimi
