NWA 6963

Morocco
Found in september 2011
Achondrite, shergottite (Mars)
Total mass > 10 kg

Specimen in collection :
1.94 g slice with crust

I bought a complete specimen of 65 grams at the Ensisheim Show in june 2012 then I sent it for cutting to Marlin Cilz (USA) who also polished the slices on one side. This beautiful meteorite contains grains of clinopyroxene and of maskelynite measuring up to 5mm in length and silicated glass inclusions related to shocks in the rock during the Martian impact. Another name for this meteorite is Fej Errih which is the name of the place in Morocco where it was found.
