German chemist Justus von Liebig is credited with inventing the modern mirror in the 19th century. Today, meteorite collectors will refer to their trusty ataxites, such as Chinga. An ataxite is a meteorite with no internal structure, such as Widmanstätten patterns or Neumann Lines. This meteoritical marvel displays a rich abundance of the mineral taenite which is often seen in harmonious geometrical Widmanstätten patterns within other types of iron meteorites. As a result, Chinga produces a heterogenous, mirror-like surface when it is cut and polished. Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the shiniest meteorite fall?
