NWA 4233 - COMPLETE SLICE OF IRON METEORITE WITH EXQUISITE
IAB Complex - Iron
Northwest Africa - Moroccan Sahara
In 2004, a single mass weighing less than one pound was purchased
at the Hamburg Mineral Fair in Germany. While it was believed to be
a meteorite, this was not determined until the specimen was
subdivided and analyzed. This complete slice features what is among
the more beautifully intricate fine octahedral crystalline patterns
known. As a result of small mass, specimens of NWA 4233 are
exceedingly difficult to obtain, and this is guaranteed to be a
novel addition to any collection.
It measures 1.5 x 1 x 0.1 inches (42 x 29 x 3 mm) and weighs
