Dhofar 132 (Oman) Ureilite (stone) Found January 2000

Ureilites are a rare class of meteorite that are unrelated to other achondrites. Composed mainly of olivine and orthopyroxene pigeonite, and carbon in the high pressure form of diamond. These microscopic diamonds, formed by the intense shock of colliding asteroids, make ureilites incredibly difficult material to cut into slices.
