Vaca Muerta Meteorite | 3.50 Gr | Slice | Mesosiderite A1 | Chile | SO24

This is a superb looking Stony-iron or Mesosiderite Vaca Muerta (Dead Cow) classified meteorite slice weighing 3.50 grams. Its dimensions are 28x15x3 mm.

This classified meteorite was found in 1861 in the driest desert of the world called the Atacama, in Chile. Mesosiderites are formed on the surface of a parent body as a result of impacts with another body. The impact mixed broken fragments of surface eucrites with iron and olivine from deep within the body. Eucrites are believed to have come from the asteroid Vesta. Analysis has shown, however, that the Vaca Muerta eucrite inclusions are not consistent with other eucrites and possibly originated on a different parent body. Although most have a weathered exterior, they also have lots of metal inside and can be prepared and cut to show this.

This slice displays extremely well and would be a beautiful addition to any new or existing collection.  Comes with a BA-Meteorites and a Canagem® specimen cards.
