Description
Beautiful and nice example of an unclassified NWA Howardite achondrite meteorite, prepared as a polished section.
Guaranteed by IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Association) member 5681, the Geologist Juan Avilés Poblador
Howardites are achondritic stony meteorites that originate from the surface of the asteroid 4 Vesta, and as such are part of the HED meteorite clan. There are about 200 distinct members known. They are a regolith breccia consisting mostly of eucrite and diogenite fragments, although carbonaceous chondrules and impact melt can also occur. The rock formed from impact ejecta which was later buried by newer impacts and lithified due to the pressure from overlying layers. Regolith breccias are not found on Earth due to a lack of regolith on bodies which have an atmosphere.
