This meteorite was taken from the desert by nomads and brought to Europe via Morocco.
Most meteorites are found in Antarctica or in the desert. The simple reason is that they stand out the most between loose sand or snow. All meteorites from the North West of Africa are called NWA meteorites. Often nothing is known about the exact location or the composition of the meteorite. It is then simply given the Name NWA
There are many classifications within meteorites, this meteorite is not officially classified. The outer structure (melting crust and fault lines) do tell us that it is 100% definitely a meteorite. The meteorite is not made of metal, so it is a chondrite or stone meteorite.
It is clear that the chondrite contains traces of iron, this gives them the red-brown color. This meteorite is also light magnetic.
