Mahbse Aarraid, 2014 Witnessed Fall Morocco, Micromount

Description

On June 08, 2014, Bedouin nomads recovered fresh meteorites in the Saharan Desert near Zag Morocco. There are conflicting reports about the exact date of the fall, but all agree that this meteorite is a new witnessed fall. This meteorite is currently undergoing classification and the final analysis is not yet complete. Judging by appearances and degree of magnetic attraction, this meteorite is very likely to be an LL-type with a petrologic grade of 5 or 6 (LL5 or LL6). It has a light grey matrix with very few visible chondrules and sparse metal fleck. The fusion crust is dark black and very fresh.
