Said writes:
Black Beauty is an exceptional meteorite. This meteorite is not alone as other stones of the same type have been found in the fall zone.

It is a Martian meteorite, certainly the rarest meteorite and the most interesting at the scientific level ever found. There are meteorite hunters who discovered it in Western Sahara.

It is the oldest rock on the planet Mars ever discovered and it contains more water than any other known Martian meteorite. Its texture is breccia and it is composed of an agglomerate of rocks of which each rock tells us an exciting story.
