Beginning in December 2019 many similar dark stones were found together in the Kidal region of Mali, close to the border with Algeria.
All specimens (many of which have a flattened slab-like form) lack fusion crust and exhibit medium-brown, "knobby" exterior surfaces. Interiors of stones have an overall tan to pinkish hue with obvious light gray, dark gray and whitish clasts plus some visible small grains of metal.
Composed of mineral clasts of anorthite, olivine, pigeonite, subcalcic augite, augite and orthopyroxene, plus sparse lithic clasts of spinel troctolite, set in a fine grained microvesicular matrix containing accessory altered kamacite, troilite, taenite and pentlandite.
