"Rocky meteorites comprise a great variety of types, the most abundant being ordinary chondrites,

the carbonaceous chondrites and the acondrites. They are basically composed of silicates such as olivine and pyroxene, but

Its fundamental characteristic is that they have some spherules (chondrules), in their interior, those spheres are primordial materials

of our solar system, are the oldest and most fascinating materials that we can see and have in our hands.

* It is believed that this ordinary chondrite meteorite fell more than what is now Algeria and Morocco. His fall was exceptionally strong. Since its discovery in 2000, more than 7 tons of rain have been removed in the size of a fraction of an ounce of more than 50 pounds.

It is classified as an ordinary chondrite. The bright spots of iron on the surface of the cut are visible, which causes a slight magnetic attraction.
Many of these samples are collected by nomads. Since geographic features and political boundaries are not easily discernible in this section of the Sahara, their exact location is not available
