This meteorite was taken from the desert by nomads and brought to Europe via Morocco.
North West Africa (NWA)
Most meteorites are found in Antarctica or in the desert. The simple reason is that they stand out the most here between the loose sand or snow. All meteorites from the northwest of Africa are called NWA meteorites. Often nothing is known about the exact location or composition of the meteorite. It is then simply given the Name NWA
Suspected H6 meteorite
There are many classifications within meteorites, this meteorite is not officially classified. The external structure (melting crust and fault lines) tell us that it is 100% sure to be a meteorite. The meteorite is not made of metal, so it is a chondrite or stone meteorite. Furthermore, this meteorite has a high metal content and it appears to be an 'H6 chondrite'
Despite the fact that this is a stone meteorite, it is magnetic because of its high metal content. There is even so much iron in it that the stone can bear its own weight and can be lifted with a magnet. A nice addition to the collection.
