Superb end cut of NWA 869 meteorite, the largest of stony type known to the world until today. This is an ordinary brecciated chondrite, classified as L3-6. The dispersal area is located in the vicinity of Tindouf, Algeria, also spreading to the border with Morocco. In this nice-sized specimen we can see superb chondrules on the surface, also in the polished area, and besides we can observe its brecciated structure with areas of a different colour. Spectacular!
A nice opportunity to add to your collection a piece of the most famous classified chondrite in the world. Chondrites are the oldest material in the Solar System, having an estimated formation age of 4,550 million years. A true gem of the universe in your hands.
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.
