Nice piece of carbonaceous chondrite where you can see the chondrules, the original crust of the meteorite and CAI. Delivered with a display box
The carbonaceous chondrites contain amino acids and water in their composition, being perhaps the most amazing meteorites at a scientific level that we can have in our hands, since the latest studies suggest that they were the ones that sowed, with their amino acids and high carbon content, Life on earth
CAI´s (Calcium-Aluminium) are the oldest substances in the Solar System.
They are very scarce, barely representing 4.8% of the meteorites found, so they rarely go on sale.
Chondrites are the oldest materials in the Solar System, with an estimated formation age of 4,550 million years.
The characteristic of chondrites is the presence of chondrules, small balls of millimetres in size, largely composed of silicates.
The standard model for its initial formation is that they occur during the condensation of the solar nebula, of the cosmic dust.
The chondrules are considered to be the first elements from which the planets are formed.
