This is a superb whole specimen of the famous Northwest Africa 2965 meteorite weighing 45.89 grams. This is a beautiful specimen from the Thomas Phillips Meteorite Collection.

Its dimensions are 45x38x32 mm. This North West Africa was classified originally as an EL6/7, then later as an EL3 and finally an EL-Melt Rock meteorite which was found along with the rest of the total mass of more than 100 Kilograms in the Algerian Desert in August 2005.  This is one of the oldest meteorites on our planet in terms of terrestrial age and has been referred to as a fossil meteorite. 

This Enstatite chondrite shock Level is minimal and weathering varies from 2 to 5. This piece displays extremely well and if cut would show a completely recrystallized enstatite chondrite with polygonal to irregular grain outlines. The grain size varies from 0.02 to 0.7 mm. Round, curved, blocky objects contain coarser-grained orthopyroxene than in the matrix. No relict chondrules were observed.

This hard to acquire piece displays very well with its prehistoric look.  This rare and quality specimen would make an amazing addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with specimen card.
