Zerhamra (Algeria) IIIA (iron) Found 1967

This iron meteorite has undergone reheating and recrystallization while still in space, creating an unusual appearance to the cut and etched faces. Traces of the original medium octahedrite crystal boundaries can still be seen, but the overall appearance of the etched face is granular, almost as if the Widmanstatten figures are out of focus!
