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 (L4-L5) - 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.

 

Our current stock includes:

  • 10-20MM (1-2 grams) in plastic display box. These pieces are from Algeria and are collected by the Bedouin and Berber peoples in the Sahara desert. They come in a plastic display box - however, I find the boxes are not of the best quality and can get scratched very easily, even during shipping.

 

 

The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade - but some photographs are still on their way!
