$5.00

Description

This meteorite was one of many small to medium-sized ordinary chondrites that were classified at various labs around the country during the mid-2000's. This particular meteorite is chondrule rich and had a nice fusion crust, which led to it's classification as an LL4 chondrite that is moderately shocked at S3 and mildly weathered at W2. This was one recovered out of Morocco in 2008. There was only a small amount of this meteorite on the market and it vanished along with many others that were offered around this time.
