Seller: fujmon (9.058) 99.9%, Location: Hilo, Hawaii, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 332411746805 Item for auction is a fresh 0.58g crusted full slice of NWA 6927 diogenite that was found in the north west Saharan desert earlier this year. Five freshly fusion crusted stones totaling 114g were purchased from a Moroccan dealer in March 2011, and shipped to Hilo Hawaii. I sent four of the stones to be cut by Montana Meteorite Laboratory on a wire saw, and had a 20g sample sent to Dr Tony Irving for analysis. Let me tell you that this is one of the freshest and most visually appealing diogenites I've offered in a long time, probably the best since NWA 6421. With NASA's Dawn spacecraft in rendezvous orbit around Asteroid 4 Vesta, this is the perfect time to offer this gorgeous representative HED which is thought to originate from the aforementioned minor body (by reflectance spectra obtained by ground based observations which closely match mineralogical constituencies in HED, or Howardite-Eucrite-Diogenite meteorites). This beautiful specimen comes in a quality labeled display box for protection and years of viewing pleasure, along with a Big Kahuna Meteorites Certificate of Authenticity. Scale cube in photo is 1cm on each side, and not included in sale. Big Kahuna combines shipping, and addresses must be in the English language, to facilitate customs input at US Postal Service. Non-English addresses cannot be shipped, and may incur additional fees for handling. We no longer ship to Italy. Condition: New
