NWA 6026 was first recovered out of the Saharan Desert of Morocco in 2009. It was analyzed and classified as a Karoonda-type of carbonaceous chondrite (CK5). It has a dark grey matrix with scattered black chondrules and blobby CAI's. This was a single stone find that weighed a modest 244 grams before cutting. This meteorite first appeared on the market in early 2010 and quickly vanished into collections. It is rarely seen now.
