Description


Superb NWA 5950 stone (CV3) meteorite end cut recovered in Algeria in 2009, exhibiting chondrules: the small, colorful, glassy spheres seen in this expertly prepared end cut are the multi-billion-year-old building blocks of the planets and asteroids. The polished end cut weighs 47.6 grams and measures approximately 75 mm x 48 mm x 10 mm. 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. A snapshot of the beginning of our solar system believed to have formed about 4.6 billion years ago, this carbonaceous chondrite meteorite is rich in carbon and exquisite in its ancient beauty.
