Keep the young scientist happy for hours with this stone’s fascinating qualities. This meteorite is from the NWA 869. The chemistry of the NWA 869 meteorite is interesting. It is a fragmented breccia that shows an internal matrix full of colors and chondrules when cut or sliced. Bits and flecks of meteoritic metal Ñ iron and nickel Ñ are usually easily visible. Meteoriticists may occasionally find carbonaceous inclusions in a specimen. Meteorites can be up to 2 billion years old. A terrific addition for amateur rock collectors of all ages!
No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
