|Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite:||Meteorite ZARAGOZA.|
|Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite:||Ungrouped hexaedrite. With fusion crust. Rare!|
|Origin (Region/ City):||Saragossa|
Zaragoza meteorite was found in Spain, somewhere in the province of the same name, around year 1950. It is a metallic meteorite, which features characteristics of the hexahedrites, but it was finally classed as abnormal VAT, for being different in some features.
Just one piece was found, which originally weighed 162 Kg. After passing through several hands, in 2006 was acquired by the famous meteorite hunter Michael Farmer, who cut it into slices and small pieces to sell it to other meteorite collectors. According to him, it has been the hardest meteorite that he has ever cut, since he needed around 3 full days to cut each slice.
Zaragoza meteorite is famous for being one of the most stable and resistant to oxidation, aspect that makes it stand out over the rest of his metallic meteorites ¨brothers¨.
The piece up for auction is a rectangular cut of this fantastic and strange meteorite. The sides are polished and treated to appreciate Neumann lines.
Great opportunity to add this item to your collection.
