Here are four unclassified full specimen chondrites that I purchased in 2005, shortly after they were found in the Sahara Desert.

Unclassified are interesting specimens. I got nearly 100 grams and from what I can see, they turn to be ordinary chondrites and occasionally enstatite chondrites (or that's what it seems to me), possibly paired with Al Haggounia 001.
