NWA 8587 was first recovered out of the Saharan Desert of Morocco in 2009. It consisted of a single modestly-sized stone with a patina of wind-polished desert varnish and remnant fusion crust. It was analyzed and classified at UWS by Dr. Tony Irving. It is a L6 chondrite with a Shock stage of S2 and a Weathering grade of W3. It has a chocolate-brown, recrystallized matrix with lighter-colored mottling and sparse chondrules. This is another obscure NWA number that you don't see on the market.

The specimen being offered here is a fragment that weighs approx. .159g (159mg).
