NWA 3128 (LL3.8) - 5.3g Partslice with Primitive/Pristine
NWA 3128 was discovered
in Northwest Africa during 2002 and purchased in Erfoud, Morocco
in 2003. A single stone weighing 532g is all that was found. NWA
3128 has been classified as an LL3.8 with a Shock Rating of 2
and a Weathering Level of just 1. This meteorite is quite
unusual because material of both Type-7 (completely
re-crystallised) nature and primitive xenoliths are present. One
of these primitive xenoliths with a darker surrounding matrix is
clearly visible below (bottom-centre) in the 5.3g partslice. This specimen is part of the
Meteorites Australia Collection (MA.05.0073).
