Estimated delivery between May 27 and June 01.

The Puerto Minguez ejecta refers to the impact ejecta from the 38 million years old twin (multiple) impact structure Azuara / Rubielos de la Cerida in Northern Spain, originating from the nearby Rubielos de la Cerida impact structure.

This is a strongly deformed limestone component (seldom different rock types) with significant displacements. Typical clast deformation looks looking like a loaf cut into slices but not fully broken into pieces.  This is typical of a short-time dynamic deformation under high confining pressure.

The similar deformations are well known from the Ries crater impact ejecta that occurred in carbonate concretions and in the famous Ries Belemnites both embedded within soft Jurassic claystone. This sample shows a limestone clast partially sliced / fractured with prominent displacements in the range of up to 12 mm. The over all dimensions of this sample is 40x60 x125 mm and weights 365 grams.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem Collection specimen card.
