An Exquisitely presented North-West African [NWA], H5 (Chondrite) meteorite and bronze display stand. The meteorite separated from a more substantial meteor body hurtling through space, eventually entering the earth's stratosphere. NWA Meteorites are formed of semi-molten particles found in the solar nebula, and by accumulation or coalescence, these particles merge to form asteroid belts. These are usually colliding with planets, especially planets with a strong gravitational pull.

- Chondrules formed by molten particles of the solar nebula - a process of accumulation or coalescence.
- Chondrites differ from iron meteorites by consisting of lower iron content.
- Chondrites provide scientific analytics, giving insight into the age of our solar system.
