Northwest Africa 11081 | Eucrite
HED achondrite, Eucrite, unbrecciated
Found in Morocco, 2016
Northwest Africa 11081 is a eucrite — an altered volcanic rock from the mighty Asteroid Vesta. One of the few meteorites with a specific known origin point, eucrites are unusual in that they do not attract to a magnet. They are also proof of geologic activity (volcanoes, etc) on large asteroids within our solar system! This meteorite is exclusive to Aerolite.
