Nice piece of a rocky meteorite, L3 chondrite type, with a good shape.
We can observe its interior, original crust and iron inclusion.
NASA's Near-Earth Object Studies Center (CNEOS) recorded the meteor's entry in April 2018 at a speed of 20.9 km/sg and it exploded in the atmosphere at a height of 30 km

Chondrites are the oldest materials in the Solar System, with an estimated formation age of 4,550 million years. They are meteorites that have not been differentiated, and because they contain iron, in this case, in high quantity, that they are type H.
Most of them come from the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter
The characteristic of chondrites is the presence of chondrules, small balls of millimetres in size, largely composed of silicates.
The standard model for its initial formation is that they occur during the condensation of the solar nebula, of the cosmic dust.
The chondrules are considered to be the first elements from which the planets are formed.
At Expometeoritos, we take care of the dissemination, talks, workshops, analysis, 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 we also deliver the analysis of the chemical composition if the value of the piece exceeds €300, carried out in our facilities by X-ray Spectrography.
