Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Beni M'Hira Meteorite - Witnessed Fall - January 8, 2001 - 28.2g Specimen with in situ pictures +
Weight: 89.6 g
Origin (Country): Tunisia

The specimen is an individual meteorite found during the January 2013 expedition on the Beni M'Hira strewnfield, and referenced on the book we wrote about the find as "Specimen F026" (the book is : Beni M'Hira - The forgotten meteorite, by Pierre-Marie Pelé, Fabien Kuntz and Marie Gerbet; we can send a signed copy on request).

Covered with fusion crust about 80% on its surface, this meteorite have in situ pictures, and the exact GPS coordinates that will be sent to the buyer with the meteorite.


The Beni M'Hira Meteorite Fall Event (extract from the official entry on Meteoritical Bulletin) :

The January 8, 2001 at 3:00pm local time, a meteorite was seen to fall in the Beni M’hira region by the inhabitants of Ksar Beni M’hira, a small village ~35 km E of Foum Tataouine, (SE Tunisia). Three fragments weighing 1720, 300, and 200 g were recovered right after the fall by local soldiers. An additional 7 pieces totalling >14 kg were later recovered by private finders.



From October 2012, the meteorite hunting teams WWmeteorites and Meteor-Center visited the area, and after several days of prospection on the field (with temperatures up to 47°C !), was able to found more stones.




Delivered with a Certificat of Authenticity, hand signed by the finder.
