Saharan Meteorite 105.8g
I recently purchased an unclassified
Saharan meteorite. The total weight of the stone was 105.8g and
after cutting the two pieces weighed 87.20g & 22.20g. You will
notice the dark line running around the edge of the piece. Very
interesting. If you have any comments, please
UPDATE: The line is a terrestrial weathering rind. As
the meteorite lays on the ground it is subject to outside
weathering forces which will change the stone. You can see in
the photographs where the meteorite was weathered more in some
parts and none in others. The bottom of the piece is where it
would have probably been facing the ground.
