Chondrite Meteorite - 26 g
North West Africa, Africa

NWA 869 L3-6.

Mineral form / Meteorite type: Chondrite meteorite.

Origin (country): Africa.

A large L chondrite strewn field have been discovered at an undisclosed location in Northwest Africa. At least 2 metric tons of material comprising thousands of individuals has been sold under the name NWA 869 in the market places of Morocco and around the world. Individual masses are known to range from 1 g to 20 kg. It is certain that NWA 869 is paired with other NWA meteorites, although no systematic survey has been done. It is also possible that some stones sold as NWA 869 are not part of the same fall, although dealers are confident that most of the known masses are sufficiently distinctive from other NWA meteorites in terms of surface and internal appearance that the error rate should be fairly low.

- Country: North-West Africa.
- Classification: Ordinary Chondrite L3-6.
- Certificate of authenticity included.
