NWA Meteorite - 126 g

SKU:TFS9186
£397.00

Availability:In stock

Details:

Separated from a more substantial meteor body entering the earth’s stratosphere. Formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula. By accumulation or coalescence, particles merge to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to more massive planetary bodies such as the earth as meteorites. Meteorites more easily discovered in flat open spaces such as desert regions and specifically Antartica, make collecting a highly specialised field activity.

Type: NWA H5
Location: Mauritanian desert (open field discovery)

Meteorite measurements.
Height: 5.8 cm
Width: 4.8 cm
Depth: 3.0 cm

Approximate weight: 0,126 g

There is one recorded account of one person being struck by a meteorite in the mid nineteen fifties which was sold for eighteen times the worth of its same weight of gold.

The Chondrite meteorites contain chondrules, these are microscopic spheres which are reputedly the building blocks of our planetary systems. Chondrites by repute originate from asteroids orbiting our solar system. Science can identify Chondrite meteorites which contain up to approximately 20% of iron and nickel, these minute iron and nickel-sized spherical mineralised chondrules are often found in iron chondrites.

These Chondrules are formed from molten particles of the solar nebula, by accumulation or coalescence, particles merge together to form asteroid belts which in turn fall to earth as meteorites. These Chondrites differ from iron meteorites due to their low iron content. Most importantly chondrites offer a greater understanding, allowing scientists to further analyse and give great insight into the age of our solar system.
