GEBEL KAMIL, Egypt

Some 1600 kg of meteorite shrapnel was found in and around the Kamil impact crater by an Italian-Egyptian team in February 2009 and February 2010. Classified as an Iron, ungrouped, these meteorite pieces have interesting shapes. The meteorite surface sitting in the desert sands show some terrestrial weathering but it adds to the uniqueness of the specimens. The specimens offered here were hand picked for their character.
