Chelyabinsk meteorites are indispensable in every collection. They have a characteristic black and smooth fusion crust and white interior. Chelyabinsk is classified as an LL5 chondrite. Sizes of specimens vary but most common weighs are just a few grams and sometimes even less than a gram.

In this lot one piece is offered. Fresh fusion crust can be seen. The clearer parts show what the interior of the rock looks like.
