The first pieces of this meteorite were purchased in 2005 from a Moroccan dealer in Tagounite. Individual pieces of this
meteorite were excavated from 0.6 to 0.7 m beneath a dry salt lake located 30 km east of El Hagounia, Western
Sahara. The meteorite is now known to come from an ancient strewnfield and has been dated to approximately 23,000
yrs (+/- 2000 yrs), making it late Pleistocene and a true 'fossil' meteorite. Also known as NWA 2965 and NWA 2828.

Specimens of this meteorite experienced heavy weathering from intermittent rainfall and intense solar radiation. Fractures
acted as weathering channelways for aqueous alteration. The "porous" nature of all specimens is due to leaching out of
formerly plentiful nickel - iron metal grains that are common in enstatite chondrites, but now are represented in these
specimens by voids. A rare classification of meteorite that has the added interest of being fossilised.

All specimens are shown next to a 20mm / 0.75 inch wide penny for scale. Weights are not listed as we believe that
when it comes to sliced material it is the surface area and internal structure that are important.

All pieces have a cut and polished face and a raw face. It is the
polished face that is shown in all of the images.
