What is Tatahouine? It looks like it has crystals.

There is always another one to buy :grin: I read here in this forum that Tatahouine was a favorite of some so I bought a small piece. It is the green meteorite if I recall correctly. I wish I had a bigger piece now.

Tatahouine is a diogenite that fell in Tunisia on June 27, 1931. It is composed almost entirely of orthopyroxene crystals.

Thanks,

Peter
