A beautiful fragment of Rumuruti chondrite meteorite (R3) nwa 11927, weight 592 g.
A truly beautiful specimen to collect or for a museum.
These meteorites are slightly different from ordinary chondrites, mainly what distinguishes them is the high degree of oxidation. Their progenitor body must have formed in regions of the early Solar System that were particularly rich in oxygen. They basically do not contain iron or free metals as over time they have been oxidized to form compounds such as silicates or sulphides. These iron-rich minerals give the rumurutites their typical reddish or light grey colour. Many rumurutites consist of various types of rocks compacted together, this suggests that they come from the most superficial areas of an asteroid, as yet unknown. Typically rumurutite condrules are small and present in smaller quantities than other types of chondrites.
