NWA 2696, Shocked Vestan Howardite, Micromount


This meteorite was recovered out of Morocco in 2004 and was analyzed by Dr. Ted Bunch at NAU in November 2004. It was given a provisional classification number and was determined to be a brecciated howardite with a shock grade of S4-6. For some unknown reason, this meteorite was never approved by NonCom and it has languished in provisional status for almost 15 years. At one time, there was a lot of this meteorite on the market, but now it is rarely seen because most of it has been absorbed into private and institutional collections.
