Description
Mesosiderite NWA 13102 paired , very rare to find with translucent Olivines - 15.3 g
NorthWest Africa

Beautiful piece of iron-stony meteorite, mesosiderite type, with a nice size and shape.

It is in a new classification, as it is a NWA 13102 paired.

On the surface we can observe different olivines, metals and crust.

Olivines are translucent, allowing light to pass through.

Mesosiderites are iron-stony meteorites formed by the impact normally of a body of metallic nature against a rocky body, so that, after the impact, the materials mix.

Some studies suggest that the impact occurred with asteroid Vesta, from which meteorites called ‘HED’ (Howardite, Eucrite, Diogenite) come.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analyses, classification and exhibitions of meteorites.

We are members of:
.- IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society

All our pieces are certified and, if the value of a piece is over €300, we also provide its chemical composition analysis, carried out in our facilities by X-ray spectrography.
