The meteorite in this lot is a nice complete meteorite, Carbonaceous Chondrite of exclusive type CO3, found in the Sahara in 2020, and which is currently under official classification.
CO chondrites are type 3, with plenty of chondrules which represent 70% of the meteorite, well defined, although small –0.15 mm on average. The also contain small CAIs. It is typical that CO feature small, clearly visible inclusions of free metal, mainly nickel-iron, which appear as small scales on cut and polished surfaces.
One of the photos shows the interior of another cut piece from the same fall, so you can get an idea of the beautiful interior of this type of chondrites.
An excellent opportunity to add this wonder of the universe to your collection.
All our meteorites come with an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) certificate, so we guarantee for life the authenticity of all our meteorites. Buy with guarantees.
Regards and best wishes.
