Description

Eucrites are a rare type of meteorite that come from Asteroid Vesta. It is in the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. It orbits the Sun with a period of 3.6 Earth years and has a diameter of 525 kilometres. A great impact occurred in the South hemisphere of Vesta less than 1 billion years ago, ejecting rocks from the asteroid into space. Eventually some of these rocks fell on Earth.

For auction a slice of NWA 8583. It was found in 2014 in Northwest Africa. It is a polymict eucrite in which clasts of different textures can bee seen.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
