Description

These meteorites were found in the Saharan Desert in Northwest Africa, likely by nomads. In order to classify them it would be necessary to cut off a section for analysis. Although they are exceedingly rare when compared to terrestrial rocks, these are the most abundant type of meteorite and are referred to as “common chondrites.” H and L (designating the amount of metal contained) type chondrites have been already extensively studied. Composed largely of spherical grain-like silicate chondrules, these stone meteorites were likely once part of the crust of a  large asteroid.

This specimen is 100% guaranteed to be a stony meteorite of the general class "chondrite" and almost certainly of the class "ordinary chondrite" and based on magnetic response is very high an "H" chondrite signifying high metal content with the other alternatives being H signifying high metal to LL signifying very low relative metal content.

All our specimens, of the same type, have been analyzed by our fellow researchers from the Applied Petrology Loboratory of the University of Alicante (Environment and Earth Sciences Department).
