NWA 6624, Shocked H5/6 Chondrite, Polished Slab, 28g

NWA 6624 was recovered out of the Saharan Desert of Morocco in 2010. It was purchased at the Tucson gem show from a Moroccan dealer in February of 2011 and a sample was analyzed. It was officially classified as an H5/6 chondrite with shock and weathering grades of four. It has a shock-blackened matrix that is shot through with veins of alteration oxides. There are very sparse tiny chondrules and metal flecks. This is an uncommon sub-type of H chondrites and this meteorite is rarely seen on the market now.

The specimen being offered here is a professionally prepared slab that is polished on five sides - one edge has been left natural. It displays well in several positions and weighs 28 grams.
