$45.00 AUD

Meteorite specimen, from the  ‘North West Africa’ scatter, -known as ‘NWA 869’ –

4 billion years old, it is non-metallic and classed as a ‘Chondrite’, meaning it’s contains a bewildering array of minerals with o ly a trace of iron-nickel. It crashed into earth in remote Algeria, the closest town being Tindouf, some time in the past 10,000 years judging from the lack of weathering to the fragments.

It is a surface scatter on the desert floor, and probably consisted of several thousand small fragments such as this example.
