Adrar, Algérie

Numerous stones containing large distinctive greenish crystals were found in May 2020 near Bir Ben Takoul, southern Algeria, in Erg Chech sand sea.

The classified stones lack fusion crust and they have an overall relatively coarse granular look, tanned and beige with large crystals in the colours green, yellow-green and, to a fewer extent, yellow-brown (up to 9 cm by 4 cm in some specimens). Some slight reddish-brown stains are obvious on areas of earth mass, which is why it is believed that this piece comes from a planet or a rather large body in our Solar System.

It has been classified as ungrouped achondrite and it has attracted a lot of attention from scientists and collectors due to its strange appearance.

It will come with the display case.

At Expometeoritos, we take care of dissemination, talks, workshops, analyses, classification and exhibitions of meteorites.

We are members of:

.- IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) #8187
.- Meteoritical Society
.- American Meteor Society

All our pieces are certified and, if the value of a piece is over €300, we also provide its chemical composition analysis, carried out in our facilities by X-ray spectrography.
