The meteorite in this lot is a nice complete piece of chondrite (stony meteorite) found in the Sahara Desert, with fusion crust and with a beautiful oriented shape and large sized for a great collection.
This is a complete specimen, and its oriented shape tells us about the way that it crossed the atmosphere, giving it this characteristic shield-like shape. It is rare to find oriented meteorites of this size.
With the purchase of this meteorite we will send as a gift a small jar with authentic sand from the Sahara desert collected in our expeditions.
Chondrites contain the oldest materials that we can find in the Solar System, having an estimated age of over 4,550 million years.
An excellent opportunity to add this wonder of the universe to your collection.
All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
Regards and best wishes.
