Common Chondrite Meteorite

Published: July 11, 2018
Description

Found by a Berber Nomad in North Africa. Like the majority of such meteorite fragments, it shows some dark fusion crust produced during its passage through the atmosphere. It is also attracted to a magnet because of its high nickel-iron content. #meteorite
