NWA 7641, Silicated Mesosiderite, Micromount


NWA 7641 is one of the freshest mesosiderites ever to come out of the Saharan desert. It has rich silicate inclusions set into a matrix of gleaming nickel iron that is surprisingly free of oxidation. The TKW is less than 400g and the supply of this meteorite is almost entirely sold out.

This meteorite was recovered out of Morocco and purchased from a dealer in Zagora. It was provisionally classified by Dr. Tony Irving at UWS in October of 2012. These pieces are small cutting crumbs salvaged from slicing larger specimens, and are primarily silicates and with little iron.
