14.3 gram oriented individual.   Martian (shergottite)

TKW 150 grams. Fall not observed. Found in Algeria in 2018.


Shun-Chung writes:
This 14.3g oriented individual was acquired from a dealerís widow. The dealer was killed in an accident during a meteorite hunting trip. Some his business partners repudiated their debts after the tragedy. To support the family he left, we acquired a part of his collections and compensated them nicely.

The below "meteorite enthusiast" states: "Directional (oriented) Martian meteorites are precious" I agree.
