NWA 1930, Unequilibrated LL3 Chondrite, Micro



This chondrule-rich meteorite was recovered out of the Saharan Desert of Morocco in 2003. It was classified at NAU by Dr. Ted Bunch, and revealed to be a unequilibrated LL3 chondrite that is primitive in nature and loaded with densely packed chondrules. It is mildly shocked and mildly weathered at S2 and W2. This meteorite was absorbed into collections years ago and it's fairly scarce on the market today. This is a nice affordable example of an LL3 meteorite and these pieces are very small part slices that broke off from a larger polished slice.
