NWA 6953 new [Re: hfjacinto]
      #5222129 - 05/14/12 03:21 PM Attachment (66 downloads)

Name: NWA 6953

Type: Stony/Iron
Group: Mesosiderite
Structural Classification: ??
Location Found: Morroco
Size: 5.1 Grams

From Galatic-Stone: "Northwest Africa 6953 is an interesting new mesosiderite whose unique nature is a result of its composition and the collective effects of long-term terrestrial weathering. The metal content in NWA 6953 has experienced dramatic alteration and has almost entirely been replaced with the iron oxyhydroxide goethite. But its not the oxidation or alteration alone that makes this meteorite fascinating. Studying how the iron oxidation process takes place on Earth in NWA 6953, a predominantly orthopyroxene-rich meteorite, may have huge implications for comparing how iron oxidation may take place in aqueous environments on other alien worlds. More importantly, studying this meteorite can potentially reveal clues as what to look for in discovering other highly terrestrialized meteorites that until now have mostly gone unnoticed."

Yours is a lot bigger than mine. I think this maybe my last purchase for a while. I want to get a new CCD for imaging so I am going to save up for that.

Helder, you now have a collection that is to be envied! Fantastic specimens, & a beautiful case to store them.

I've slowed way down on buying meteorites, as other things, much more essential are demanding those $$$; but I will resume soon!
