Description

New for 2018!

Tchifaddine (provisional) will be the seventh classified H-impact melt breccia! It is a fascinating, newly-discovered impact melt that was found near Agadez in the African nation of Niger. Whole specimens often show an unusual near-spherical shape and a rich, dark remnant fusion crust. Prepared specimens display extraordinary amounts of nickel-iron flecks, and larger slices sometimes contain metal veins and blebs. A unique and visually intriguing new find that is sure to delight collectors.
