Item 6022 - Agoudal Iron Meteorite Slice Catalog 526 (Apr 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $800.00 +
Sold Price: $614.95 (includes buyer's premium)


Handsome Agoudal iron meteorite (Morocco) slice, exhibiting an attractive Widmanstatten pattern. The full etched slice weighs 303.9 grams and measures approximately 170 mm x 92 mm x 4 mm. While the geometric Widmanstatten pattern is typical of most iron meteorites, Agoudal also shows recrystallization (the speckled features in slices) that had to have occurred millions of years ago in space—some calamity must have happened to Agoudal to melt its asteroidal core a second time. Agoudal is described as a coarsest octahedrite, meaning it has the widest bands (lamellae) of any meteorite type. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Geoff Notkin of Aerolite Meteorites Inc. and the TV show Meteorite Men, as well as a specimen identification card.
