Northwest Africa 6704

Achondrite, ungrouped
Found in Algeria, 2011

Green in color, with mysterious “bubble trains” suspended in orthopyroxene, NWA 6704 is so unusual it doesn’t fit into a typical classification group. It is classified as an ungrouped Achondrite with metal flakes! All pieces come from a single, broken stone recovered in the Sahara in 2011 and show the rare minerals awaruite and albite.
