NWA 5745 was recovered out of the Saharan desert of Morocco in late 2005. It was analyzed by Dr. Tony Irving at UWS and classified as a diamond-bearing ureilite. Like most ureilites, this meteorite contains a wealth of nanodiamonds in the matrix. The first clue that a stone is actually a ureilite is when it ruins a saw blade during cutting. This is a good meteorite for type collectors because ureilites are one those hard-to-get types
