Tatahouine (Diogenite) - 6.10g Fragment with Visible Metal.

Tatahouine is a relatively unique meteorite known for its beautiful green/grey matrix with dark shock veins running throughout. Below are two specimens which show some 'free metal' in the matrix. It is obvious in the first image as a rusty-red spot in the top left of the piece. The second image shows numerous similar smaller spots in the centre of the main face. They seem to be concentrated towards the junction of the darker shock veins. For more photos and information on Tatahouine, have a look at the Monthly Favourite for August 2004.
