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.

Bensour - 0.13g Fully Oriented Nose-Cone Individual.

Bensour - 16.57g Individual.

Bensour - 27.77g Half Individual.
