A natural, small fragment of the Tamdakht meteorite.

Specimen Type: H5 Ordinary Chondrite

Location of Fall: Quarzazate, Morocco

The Tamdakht meteorite was actually seen and heard as it fell to Earth in 2008! Moroccan citizens reported a huge fireball racing across the night sky, visible from the High Atlas Mountains. A few weeks after this incident, due to the mountainous regions and snow, the first fragments of Tamdakht were found – out of a total mass of approximately 100kg. The meteorite is named after a local village close to the impact region.

Comes in a small plastic casing with foam to protect each fragment. As well as a Specimen Identification Card for you to display at home. Perfect as a gift!

Each fragment measures approx 10 x 5 x 5 mm at its widest points and weighs approximately 1-2 grams.

Each of our Tamdakht fragments is similar to the one shown in the image – however no two fragments are identical.
