Three craters have been documented though very little material has come out of this site, and now the craters are covered over by the ever-shifting sand dunes. These pieces came from a collection that has been in storage for about 20 years; an American working in Saudi Arabia for 30 years visited the craters 3 times in the 1990s, bringing back to the States some material. This is what remains of his collection.
