Chondrite Meteorite Specimens
These small Chondrite Meteorite specimens are found primarily in North Africa.
These are classified as ‘Common Chondrite’ meteorites, a relatively common find which is not typically considered of scientific importance.
You may notice that these meteorites are a flat brown colour. Chondrite meteorites are differentiated from other types by their chemical composition.
There are three different classifications of Chondrite, but these are class L – meaning “low iron”. They have far less Iron content than some, only 7-11% by mass. This gives them a less interesting appearance than most Iron-Nickel meteorites.
Please note, unlike most of our meteorites, you will not receive the exact specimen in the photographs.
We do occasionally sell a few other Meteorite pieces, over at our Meteorite page!
