"Rocky meteorites comprise a wide variety of types, the most common being ordinary chondrites,
the carbonaceous chondrites and the achondritas. They are basically composed of silicates such as olivine and pyroxene, but
their fundamental characteristic is that they have spherules (condrulos), in their interior, those spheres are fundamental materials
of our solar system, they are the oldest and most fascinating materials we can see and have in our hands.
* It is believed that this ordinary condrite meteorite fell more than what is now Algeria and Morocco. His fall was exceptionally strong. Since its discovery in 2000, more than 7 tons have been removed that are raining in the size of a fraction of an ounce of more than 50 pounds.
It is classified as an ordinary condrita.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 geographical features and political boundaries are not easily discernible in this section of the Sahara, its exact location is not available.
