Superb complete type H meteorite, considering its high iron content.
A fantastic complete piece with a nice size; it is very hard to find pieces of this quality.
You can see regmaglypts on it. Regmaglypts are produced by air when they mould the hot surface of the meteorite.
You can also see the fusion crust caused by the high temperatures reached when entering the atmosphere; temperatures that reach 7000°C, and which is the reason why a protective thermic shield is built around spacecrafts.
Chondrites are the oldest material in the Solar System, having 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 their initial formation is that they occur during the condensation of solar nebula, of cosmic dust.
Chondrites are considered to be the first elements from which the planets are formed.
