The deserts of Northwest Africa have preserved an amazing number of meteorites, which had they fallen on more humid soils, would long since have rusted and decomposed. NWA 10499 is a chondrite purchased in 2015 from a dealer in Zagora, Morocco. The distinctly round shapes of chondrites are revealed very clearly in its thin sections.
NWA 10499 reveals a wide variety of chondrul structures when examined with the ~25X magnifier.
