Northwest Africa 6727

Stone, chondrite, L5, S1, W1
Morocco or Western Sahara
Find: 2006
TKW: 88 kg
Individual: 33.25 kg

Anvil shaped chondrite with five crusted and one broken surface. Two surfaces show deep and distinct regmaglypts up to 4 cm wide. The fusion crust is thick and well preserved with a webbing of contraction cracks. Flow lines are visible on several portions, particularly in and around the deepest regmaglypts. Not much is known about the find situation other that the strewn field is supposed to be located near the border of Morocco and the Western Sahara. At least three masses (33.25, 10.10 and 4.3 kg respectively) have appeared from this fall since 2006, but it is highly probable that many more have been sold without reference to each other.
