Dear Friends,

During a quick Google search, I came across the below
article about Oman.

UT, Oman Strike a Deal
The Torchbearer, University of Tennessee,
Spring 2005 Volume 44 No. 1
http://pr.utk.edu/torch/article.asp?id=710

Part of this brief article stated:

"Concerned about losing these valuable stones to
smugglers, the government of Oman recently put
a stop to meteorite collection and export."

Another article, which I found, is:

Oman Is A Bank Of Meteorites
By Hasan Kamoonpuri, Oman Observer 290801
http://www.newsbriefsoman.info/features/oman_meteorites.htm

The Oman Directorate General of Mineral of their Geological Survey, has a lot of information posted at their web site at:
http://www.geooman.org/geodatabase.html ,
http://www.geooman.org/research_done.html ,
http://www.geooman.org/geotourism.html ,
and http://www.geooman.org/.

Best regards,
