NWA 11184 Howardite Full Slice 4.111 grams

156.00

NWA 11184 is a perfect example of a howardite, with that classic look! Shattered bits and pieces of eucrite and diogenite make up this extraordinary, beautiful space gem. Howardite's, the 'H' in HED, are regolith breccia's believed to be from the asteroid 4 Vesta. They are the result of countless impacts, the debris buried and solidified only to be ejected at a later date and sent on a collision course with Earth!

Howardites of this quality regularly sell for $50/g or more, so this is a fantastic bargain at $38/g. Your specimen comes in a quality gem jar and is accompanied by an ID card, beginning it's record of provenance.

(Northwest Africa)

Purchased: 2015

Classification: HED achondrite (Howardite)

History: Purchased by Larry Atkins from Morocco in December 2015.
