Description

The Deport meteorite was found in Red River County, Texas (USA) in 1926. It is an important old meteorite and one of the very first meteorites that Oscar Monnig cataloged for his collection.

Deport is classified as an Iron, Coarse Octahedrite (IAB).

As an iron meteorite, it probably comes from the core of asteroids that were destroyed by impacts with other bodies. It is an alloy of iron-nickel mainly although it contains other trace elements. This specimen is among the very first meteorites that Oscar Monnig cataloged for his collection.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
