This meteorite was found on the Sahara desert, in the Atlas Mountains, in November 2019, near the famous Tazalaght copper mine.
The GPS coordinates have been recorded, and pictures of the specimen when found were taken.
An extra day on the zone do not provided any extra specimens of this meteorite.
This is a partly fusion crusted fragment, with a fresh fusion crust and nice regmaglyphs.
This meteorite belongs to the chondrite group, and displays some very poorly defined chondrules through the the surface.
Jugding on the typical avereage size of the remaining chondrules, the abunbdant matrix, the magnetic succeptibility, this meteorite belongs probably to the L group, probably highly metamorphosed (I would guess L5; but just based on experience, not a full classification).
