The Bensour meteorite fall occurred over the Algeria/Morocco
border on February 10th, 2002 at 4:00pm. Bensour has been
classified as a very fine grained monomict breccia LL6 with a
Shock Level of 4 and a Weathering Level of 0. Have you ever
heard the saying; "Good things come in small packages"? Well
it's true for this fantastic little Bensour individual below. It
is a tiny 0.13g absolutely perfectly oriented nose-cone with
100% fresh fusion crust. You can just make out the little
roll-over lip which is at the trailing edge of the meteorite. It
may be small, but it's also perfect and is part of the
Meteorites Australia Collection.
0.13g Fully Oriented Nose-Cone Individual.
