NWA H5 Meteorite - Mauritanian Desert

NWA Meteorite [H5] - 446 G

£982.00 GBP

A marvellous North-West Africa [NWA] H5 chondrite meteorite 446 grams on a custom bronze stand. Now separated from a substantial meteor originating from asteroids orbiting our solar system which in rare cases, enter the earth’s stratosphere, impacting the heart of the Western Saharan Desert, revealing a molten surface whilst displaying the interior structure throughout the surface break which can be observed around the noted fractures that have occurred upon impact.

The Chondrite meteorites contain chondrules, microscopic spheres which are reputedly the building blocks of our planetary systems. Science identifies Chondrites by the approximated 20% of iron and nickel found within and these mineralised spherical chondrule compounds are often discovered within these iron chondrites.

These Chondrules are formed by semi-molten particles of the solar nebula, by accumulation or coalescence, these particles merge to form asteroid belts and some of these asteroids separate and fall to planetary origins, in some cases, earth. These Chondrites differ from iron meteorites due to their low iron content. Most importantly chondrites offer a greater understanding, allowing scientists to further analyse the age of our solar system.

Such discoveries allow science to analyse a percentage of extraterrestrial gems that form parts of our solar system which has evolved over 4.5,000,000,000 (billion) years as we know it. Science at the hands of the homo sapien understands where less than 0.01% of the estimated 50,000 to 75,000 terrestrial impacts each year derive, including the planets we have visited.
