This is a fragment of Meteoritic shale (highly oxidized piece) of a Mundrabilla classified meteorite.  It weighs 5.68 Grams and measuring 24x15x10 mm.  This Iron IAB-ung classified meteorite was found in the Nullarbor Plain, Western Australia in 1911 with so far approximately 24 tons of this material having been recovered.

The meteorites were found  by geologists R. B. Wilson and A. M. Cooney while engaged on a geological survey. Both masses are lying within only very slight depressions in clayey soil, some 180 m apart. The larger mass tends to have a crude conical to hemispherical shape with the nose partially buried in the soil. The axis is inclined at an angle of approximately 60°. Evidence of fragmentation of a larger mass is afforded by a sharp, angular, vertical face on the larger mass, which matches both in size and shape, a similar sharp face on the smaller mass. Preliminary study indicates that the meteorite came from the west at relatively low velocity and high angle. The larger mass has been presented to the Western Australian Museum, while the smaller mass is in Geosurveys possession (Adelaide, South Australia).

The state of this meteorite happened when large pieces that are oxidized, dropped pieces off once the iron rusted away. All of these shale pieces are from the main crater (of the 12 ton specimen) meaning that they came from the largest piece of this meteorite known.  This particular specimen is from the Michael Farmer Meteorite Collection.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a Canagem specimen card and a Michael Farmer Meteorites card.
