NWA 869 Meteorite | 14.82 Gr | End Cut | L3-6 Chondrite | Northwest Africa SO24

This is a fantastic End Cut 14.82 gram NWA (Northwest Africa) 869 L3-6 classified meteorite. The dimensions of the specimen are 44x32x8 mm.

NWA 869 classified meteorites are interesting inside and out and so perfectly shaped to catch your attention. It displays a superb crust on the back surface and the cut face was professionally prepared to show all the chondrules typical of the best 869s.  Most samples are individual meteorites but some fragments (mostly >1 kg) also occur. In most cases the fusion crust has been polished or ablated by wind erosion. Many samples are more severely affected and show faces with deep wind erosion features. Fracture faces, formed by ground collision, show a typical gray-green color and sometimes visible brecciation (light and/or dark clasts).  This premium quality specimen shows the best 869 you can get today.

Would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection. Comes with a nice display protective box plus a MeteorPassion and a Canagem Collection specimen cards.
