NWA 4468 Martian Shergottite Meteorite

NWA 4468 Martian Shergottite Meteorite
NWA 4468 is a Primitive Enriched Olivine Basaltic Shergottite Martian meteorite. A single 675 gram, wonderfully fresh and mostly crusted stone was purchased in Western Sahara in July 2006. It represents one of the freshest Martian meteorites discovered to date, nearly as fresh as observed falls. This remarkable meteorite has large amounts of maskelynite (shock glass), which is a wonder to observe under a microscope!

NWA 4468 is by far one of the most beautiful Martian meteorites known and would make for a worthy specimen in any serious collection.
