Chondrite Meteorite from North West Africa - 667 g

Chondrite Meteorite from North West Africa - 667 g
60% fresh fusion crust

This chondrite meteorite with excellent shape was found in Sahara desert and bought to a Moroccan dealer in 2018. Chondrites are called so because they have chondrules, tiny spheres that are considered the first solid material of the Solar System. They also have tiny but visible particles of iron. In this specimen the fusion crust (the burnt rock due to the atmosphere ablation) remains fresh in 60% of the specimen. The other parts show the original color and texture of the rock, identical as when the rock was in outer space.

Weight is: 667 grams.

Certificate of authenticity included.
