Description

Enstatite chondrites are a rare, comprising only 2% of the total chondrites known. They tend to be high in the mineral enstatite, hence their name. With only 0,01% of their weight in the form of water, they are the driest naturally occurring objects in the Solar System. It has been suggested that their parent body could be the 16-Psyche, an asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

Only 682 grams of NWA 11667 are known to exist. This is a nice opportunity to own a rare type of meteorite that moreover is classified in the Meteoritical Bulletin. It was bought to a Moroccan dealer in November 15th, 2018 in Morocco. This slice comes from the main mass.

Certificate of authenticity included. IMCA 5591.
