NWA H5 Meteorite 6500 g

£6,472.00 GBP

A North-West Africa [NWA] H5 Chondrite Stony Meteorite set into the fossil store custom made brass and bronze Stand weighing accumulatively 7,300 g, with a net weight of 6,500 g. The meteorite separated from a substantial meteor body in space eventually entered the earth’s stratosphere — these objects formed of semi-molten particles of the solar nebula and by accumulation or coalescence, particles merged to form asteroid belts. These objects, in turn, fall to more massive planetary bodies, sometimes our planet.

Chondrite meteorites are more easily discovered in flat open spaces like desert regions and Antartica (the latter a scientific reserve no meteorites found are allowed to be traded or sold) and this makes collecting a highly specialised field activity.


A significantly sized meteorite separated from a larger meteor on entry through the earth’s atmosphere. The stony-iron meteorite impacting in the Saharan western desert displays a glossy or molten surface, the interior structure can be observed where surface impact fractures occurred long ago and have now been weathered over thousands of years on the desert surface.


The hand made plinth with an upstand with cradle has been commissioned to the highest standards of quality, the cradle clasps and securely holds the meteorite in place. The whole stand is finished in a brass and bronze patina, created to compliment the natural depths of the tone of the alien rock. The raised space rock has now an elegance which attempts to emulate the trajectory through the atmospheres of the earth, giving a view of its possible journey to terra firma.


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.
