A 436 g stone was found close to the locations of Sayh al Uhaymir 005 and 008. All three samples may be paired. Mineralogy and classification (A. Bischoff, Mün): has a porphyritic texture with large olivine phenocrysts (Fo61–68) embedded in a groundmass of pyroxene (En60–68Wo7–12) and maskelynite (An59–67); shock stage, S5; calcite veins were observed, probably due to terrestrial weathering. Specimens: type specimen, 11 g, Mün; main mass with anonymous finder.
