it was once suggested that Angrite came from Mercury.
A well known and trusted dealer never said it came from Mercury only said " Possibly from Mercury".
In my early days of collecting I couldn't resist the temptation, and now I own about 15 grams of 4.6 billion years old Angrite. 9o% of which is NWA 2999.

Hi Dick,

I too have some NWA 2999, most likely purchased from the same trusted dealer.
