Allende (CV3.2)



Allende (CV3.2) 19.6g Individual — Allende is one of the most primitive meteorites, and it illustrates the history of our solar system better than any other space rock. The calcium-aluminum inclusions (CAIs) seen in CV chondrites were the very first bits of matter to condense out of the solar nebula and even pre-date chondrules by 2-3 million years. The chondrules in Allende formed over 100 million years before the accretion of differentiated bodies like Earth began. This specimen displays all the important visible characteristics of Allende. There is an approximately 15mm x 15mm window into the interior of this stone, which reveals a large 4mm diameter CAI, plus dozens of chondrules with many displaying their spherical shape. The exterior of this individual shows over 50% fusion crust. (SR0103)
