A polished end cut of NWA 869 end cut. With awesome polishing quality, the slice has been flat lapped to 14000 grit and has a mirror-like surface. With a finish that fine, the inner structures of the meteorite can be seen in great detail and preservation against oxidation is high. This end cut includes mirror-like iron inclusions (that are difficult to display photographically) and chondrules, the first material condensed out of the solar fog. The specimen comes with a certificate of authenticity. Shipping costs are 6 Euro within the EU and Switzerland, and 10 Euro worldwide. For multiple purchases we combine shipping.
