Description

Hammadah al Hamra 346 “Ghadamis”
Stone, Ordinary chondrite (L6)

Hammadah al Hamra 346 “Ghadamis” is recorded as a possible witnessed fall in Libya on August 26 of 2018. Note the rich black fusion crust and large well-formed regmaglypts on this excellent whole stone. The freshness of the crust indicates it was picked shortly after the fall and has experienced little, if any, weathering. Chips in the crust, likely acquired during flight or upon impact, show a light interior with a few relict chondrules.

Given the absence of weathering of the stones, it is speculated Ghadamis originated from the 2018 meteor seen over this region. In 2019, Mr. Marcin Cimala purchased 30 kilograms of stones from a Mauritanian  meteorite dealer. Stones of this possible fall are currently being traded under the name of Hammadah al Hamra 346 and Ghadamis.
