NWA 869 Meteorite | 4.78 Gr | Individual | L3-6 Chondrite | Crusted Specimen | SO24

This is a fantastic lot of crusted individual NWA (Northwest Africa) 869 L3-6 classified meteorites, found by Nomads in the Sahara Desert. It weighs 4.78 grams and  measures 18x13x10 mm. This specimen comes from the Hupé Collection.

NWA 869 classified meteorites can still be interesting and this one is for sure perfectly shaped to catch your attention. It displays a superb crust on most of its surface.  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).

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