NWA 869 STONE METEORITE
THE WORLD'S FINEST METEORITES
NORTHWEST AFRICA 869
Classification: L4-6 chondrite
Weight: 7,929 grams
Location: Tindouf, Algeria, Northwest Africa
Date of find: 2000
Notes: Northwest Africa 869 is one of our favorite meteorites, with its unique blue-grey fusion crust, remarkable brecciation and abundant, colorful chondrules. This magnificent individual is probably the largest we've ever seen and certainly the largest we've ever offered for sale. This uncommonly fine specimen displays good, shiny fusion crust and abundant well-formed regmaglypts — a feature very rarely seen on stone meteorites. It is also moderately flight oriented and roughly the size of a football. The scale cube pictured is 1 cm to a side, giving an indication of the size of this piece. Sadly, photos just do not do it justice. An excellent, impressive, complete stone.
