MARS METEORITE. (NWA 12269 paired -Sergotita-) ACONDRITA. Full slice XXL - 14.9 g
Africa, Northwest Africa

Classification: Martian meteorite (Shergottite)

Fantastic complete slice of a meteorite from Mars, paired with NWA 12269 which has been classified as a Martian shergottite, after all the studies and timely analysis. It shows minimal signs of weathering, so it looks fresh and without much ground metamorphism, which increases its scientific value because of the low level of contamination that it suffered while in contact with other materials of our planet.

Although meteorites from Mars usually have a very small size, the specimen we offer is a large sample of this rare meteorite from our sister planet, being one of the largest specimens currently available in the world. One face is polished and the other as it was after the cut with a diamond thread.

Martian meteorites are the scarcest ones that exist, because of what they represent genuine wonders of the Universe in our hands.

A piece worth of a great collection.

We are members of IMCA (International Meteorites Collectors Association) number # 7412. Buy with guarantees.
