MARS METEORITE Shergottite. NWA 12594 (possible paired). Very nice, XL. MUSEUM. - 265 g

Fantastic Mars meteorite, possibly paired with NWA 12594 (according to the morphology, characteristics, area in which it was found and information from the seller), classified as a Martian shergottite, after all the pertinent studies and analyses. It shows low signs of terrestrial metamorphism, which increases its scientific value due to the low contamination it has suffered on contact with other materials from our planet. The fusion crust is very fresh and crystallized, with flow lines that can be sensed. The side in ochre is the area of the meteorite that was in contact with the ground when it was found.

Although meteorites from Mars are normally very small, the specimen we offer is one of the largest you will ever find, and of an exceptional quality. Absolutely magnificent. Absolute museum quality.

Martian meteorites are the scarcest ones that exist, so they represent genuine wonders of the universe in our hands.

All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.

Regards and best wishes.
