Description
Meteorite GEBEL KAMIL. Ataxite Final cut. - 79.6 g
Egypt

Gebel Kamil meteorite fell in what is nowadays Egypt about 5,000 years ago, coming from the core of an asteroid already disintegrated in the process of formation of the solar system. It was discovered by a group of geologists in 2009. Since then, some fragments have been recovered, usually of small size.

In this batch we present a magnificent specimen of Gebel Kamil, which presents the typical characteristics of this famous ataxite, but with the particularity that the polished face has been attacked with nitric acid. Being an ataxite, it does not have the characteristic Widmanstätten patterns, but you can see certain very interesting free structures. Perfect polishing.

We are members of IMCA (International Meteorites Collectors Association), with number #7412. We certify the authenticity of all our products. Buy with warranties.

Greetings and good luck.
