In this CV3 chondrite lots of chondrules can be seen together with excellent calcium aluminum-rich inclusions (CAIs) on the surface of the specimen. It was found in Western Sahara in 2020.

Chondrules and calcium-rich inclusions (CAIs) are approximately 4.5 billion years old, making them the oldest known matter in existence on Earth, predating the formation of our own planet and even our Solar System. Carbonaceous chondrites comprise about 4% of all meteorites observed to fall from space. New micro-minerals are classified on meteorite CAIs on a regular basis, being studied nowadays by prestigious mineralogists around the world.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
