This extremely rare NWA 1500 Meteorite slice is a Urelite Meteorite, which fell in Morocco.
Ureilite is a rare type of stony meteorite that has a unique mineralogical composition very different from that of other stony meteorites. Compared to most other meteorites, ureilites tend to have a high percentage of carbon in the form of graphite and nanodiamonds, these diamonds tend to be no more than a few micrometres in diameter. It is a rare class of Plagioclase-bearing monomict ureilite. A technical name for ureilite would be olivine-pigeonite achondrite.
ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
