Lot 33: COMPLETE SLICE OF THE TIMBUKTU METEORITE, Mesosiderite — B4 Timbuktu, Mali (16°47’23”N, 3°0’15” W)

The meteorite’s external surface delimits this softly triangular complete slice. The cut and polished face reveals a mixture of segregated russet-bronze silicates, iron-nickel flakes & nodules and centimeter-sized yellow-green pyroxene aggregates along with two notable nodules for iron-nickel. There is minimal brecciation. Modern cutting.
107 x 154 x 4mm. (4¼ x 6 x ⅛in.)
