L melt breccia chondrite
Total mass : 1 993 g

Specimen in collection :
46.36 g individual

This meteorite was purchased by myself and the team WWMeteorites in January 2014 in Morocco. It consists of two lithologies, one being a shocked chondrite which surface has a scaly appearance, many parts overlapping and disintegrating, the other being made of the same material as the first chondritic part but this time completely melted and having the appearance of nodules of variable size with a smooth surface. This is one of the meteorites that has the strangest aspect we have ever seen.
