Every now and then a larger well preserved meteorite is found in the Sahara desert. This 10.179 kilogram example is no exception! It is 100% intact and displays two sides of regmaglypts and two other sides where the stone actually sheared off at 90 degree angles making for a striking collection piece!
While a good portion of the original fusion crust has long ago worn away by years of sand abrasion in the desert, much of the crust is abundant on the two flat surfaces as can be seen in the images. This large chocolate-brown chondrite meteorite would make a fine addition to any collection!
