Carbonaceous chondrite meteorite from Northwest Africa

Class: Carbonaceous chondrite CR2

Notes: Full slice with chondrules and CAIs. Contains pre-solar grains

With a small total known weight of 707.3 grams, Aerolite acquired six identical appearing full stones with smooth abraded fusion crust. A saw cut reveals many distinct chondrules of variable size set in a dark-grey groundmass. This rare, newly classified CR2 is thought to have been heated at higher temperatures as compared to other carbonaceous chondrites (CI/CM) and formed in an aqueous environment. NWA 10256 is an Aerolite exclusive!
