NWA 3161 is a very beautiful and interesting LL3.7 chondrite found in Northwest Africa in August of 2005. This is a very exciting looking meteorite displaying very sharp, wall-to-wall chondrules of all sizes, some of them rimmed in a very busy brownish-orange matrix. Some of the slices have odd black inclusions while others have what appears to be a different lithology, truly a fascinating meteorite! NWA 3161 is very fresh with original fusion crust and excellent thumb printing. It has a Shock grade of 1 and a low Weathering grade of 1. There were originally two stones totaling 579 grams, but after another expedition to Morocco in the same month, an additional 14 stones were found, making the Total Known Weight 2,648 grams.
