NWA 869 Meteorite | 5.29 Gr | Individual | L3-6 Chondrite | Crusted Specimen | SO24

This is a fantastic crusted 5.29 grams NWA (Northwest Africa) 869 L3-6 classified meteorite Individual found by Nomads in the Sahara Desert. The dimensions of the specimen are 15x14x12 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.
