Meteorite Lot, Unclassified NWA, Over One Pound of Stones


This is a lot of unclassified meteorite stones and fragments that weighs a total of 632 grams (over one pound). These stones are "as-found" and have not been cleaned. They have varying degrees of weathering, and some have remnant fusion crust or desert varnish.

These meteorites was recovered from the Saharan Desert in the early 1990's and has resided in a single collection since it's sale now. I acquired this directly from the owner who bought it on an expedition to Morocco in the days just prior to the gold rush of so-called "NWA" meteorites. These pieces could benefit from a better cleaning, but I don't like to disturb these stones too much during handling. So I will leave a final cleaning to the buyer.

Judging by appearances and magnetic attraction, these meteorites are likely a H or L type chondrites.
