Description


An egg-shaped Northwest Africa (NWA) 869 stone meteorite, nicely cut into two matching halves with both faces polished. The matched pair weighs 185.1 grams and (put together) measures approximately 40 mm x 50 mm x 45 mm. A very attractive piece. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men. NWA 869 is a very unusual classification: L 4-6. This means it exhibits characteristics of different meteorite types and is a breccia that may have been formed by asteroidal collisions in space. Noted expert and "Meteorite Man" Geoff Notkin educates us on his adventures worldwide as a meteorite hunter in this podcast.
