Description

A colleague of ours in Europe calls this gorgeous meteorite “The Princess of the Irons” and the title is well deserved. Found near the Moroccan town of Taza in 2001, this rare desert iron is an ungrouped (UNGR) plessitic octahedrite and is also known as Northwest Africa 859. Taza irons display a lovely caramel coloured patina; many specimens retain some original blue-grey fusion crust, and many also show features of orientation. TKW only 100kg
