Allende (CV3)

On February 8, 1969, the largest carbonaceous chondrite to be discovered on Earth fell in Pueblito de Allende, Chihuahua, Mexico. Fragments were scattered across Allende, making the meteorite strewn field one of the largest ones documented to date, with a total known weight of 2 metric tons.

The Allende meteorite is classified as a CV3 and has a total composition of about 24% iron. Throughout each specimen, calcium-aluminum inclusions (white crystal-like additions) are evident. On the basis of scientific analysis, these inclusions are estimated to be more than 4.5 billion years old. Allende specimens are older than Earth itself!

    Hello I wanted to know what you have about oriented stones, especially allende, you can check easier than I can, if you have some oriented stones, please let me know!
    I have seen some good Allende indivudual, easy to see shape ad good fusion crust, and affordable price!
    So, if with luck there is even slighty oriented shape, I would be happy!
    Oriented is my collection theme.
