Marvellous complete meteor type H, for its high content of iron

It is possible to see a number fo regmaglypts. Regmaglypts are produced by air moulding the hot surface of the meteorite

Broken into two pieces due to the strong impact

You can also see the fusion crust caused by the high temperatures reached when entering the atmosphere, temperatures that reach 7,000°C, and this is the reason why a protective thermic shield is built around spacecrafts
