1 in stock

SKU: 2567 Categories: ,


This is a stony iron meteorite from the Sahara desert. This desert encompasses a huge area that stretches from Egypt to Morocco. It is ideal for preserving and collecting meteorites because of the sand environment which often exposes the meteorites that are easily identified by their unearthly characteristics. Many types exist including those with an iron, nickel and silicate composition: hence a stony iron type. Most exact points of impact are unclear and are simply designated as North West Africa (NWA) because Morocco is where the main commercial market lies. This meteorite measures 13/16 x 5/8 x 9/16 inches or 20 x 16 x 14 mm. It weighs   9.5 grams
