This meteorite was taken from the desert by nomads and brought to Europe via Morocco.

North West Africa (NWA)

Most meteorites are found on Antarctica or in the desert. This has a simple reason that they stand out in the environment of the loose sand or the snow. All meteorites from North West Africa are called NWA meteorites. Often the exact location or composition of the meteorite is not known. The name NWA is then simply given.

Suspected H6 meteorite

There are many classifications within meteorites, this meteorite is not officially classified. The external structure (melting crust and fracture lines) do tell us that it is 100% certainly 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 seems to be a' H6 chondrite'.

Magnetic rock

Although 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 carry its own weight and can be lifted with a magnet. A nice addition to the collection.

Dimensions of the gift box

The collection box has a size of 5.8 x 3.8 cm and is 1.6 cm thick. The inside is foam coated. You will always receive a box with similar content as shown in the picture.
