Beautiful piece of stony meteorite, L3 chondrite type.
We can observe its interior, original crust and iron inclusion.
NASA's Near-Earth Object Studies Center (CNEOS) recorded the meteor's entry in April 2018 at a speed of 20.9 km/s and it exploded in the atmosphere at a height of 30 km.
It will be delivered with its display case.
Chondrites are the oldest material in the Solar System, with an estimated formation age of 4,550 million years. They are meteorites that have not been differentiated, and since they contain iron, in this case, in high quantity, they are type H.
Most of them come from the asteroid belt located between Mars and Jupiter.
The characteristic of chondrites is the presence of chondrules, small balls of millimetres in size, largely composed of silicates.
The standard model for their initial formation is that they occur during the condensation of solar nebula, of cosmic dust.
Chondrites are considered to be the first elements from which the planets are formed.
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
