In 1999, a strewnfield of meteorites was discovered in the remote Libyan Sahara. Samples of the dark black stones were recovered by prospectors and sent for analysis. The stones were classified as carbonaceous chondrites of the CO3 type. Although a sizeable amount of meteorites were found, this locality is rarely seen on the collector market. This is one of the early Saharan carbonaceous chondrites and it shows a dark black matrix set with prolific tiny white chondrules and inclusions.

The specimen offered here is a professionally-prepared slice that has a mirror polish on both sides. It is ideal for microscope study and looks fantastic under magnification. It weighs approx. 3.5 grams.
