Achondrite Meteorite

Tatahouine Diogenite

This is a very strange and unusual green meteorite.
The meteorite fell on June 27, 1931 at 0130 hours about 2 1/2 miles NE of the village of Foum Tatahouine, Tunisia.

This meteorite has a very friable,crystalline structure and when it hit  Earth it  smashed into thousands of pieces.
A total weight of around 12 kilos was collected - nearly all of these in small fragments. 

You won't receive this exact specimen but all  I have in stock are very similar and weigh roughly 0.1 - 0.2 grams and come in a padded gem jar - and complete with a signed certificate of authenticity

A beautiful and strange little specimen
