NWA 8047, CM1
We had just missed out on another specimen from this find; I messaged the seller as soon as I saw his photo of a carbonaceous chondrite with a nearly chondrule-free interior…but a meteorite dealer had beaten me to the punch. I bothered the seller, asked around, and this ~17 gram stone turned up within a week — a second followed. CM1’s are remarkably rare, with only a few — three — known outside of Antarctica, including this find. This particular CM1 is quite fresh, with fusion crust rivaling that of a witnessed fall. It exhibits odd semi-parallel fractures, also seen in Moapa Valley (see photos).
16.69 gram broken individual and 12.51 gram oriented individual.
