Dar al Gani 332 (CO3)
"Offered here today is an neat 2.2 gram cut specimen of the Dar al Gani 332 (CO3) carbonaceous chondrite. This stone of 280 grams was found in the Libyan portion of the Sahara Desert in 1997. Carbonaceous chondrites represent a very small percentage of the total known meteorites and are special in that they contain carbon compounds that vary from those found here on earth. Who knows what part meteoritic carbon played on the genesis of life on our little planet. CO3 meteorites are also noted for the small chondrule size as well as lots of tiny flecks of metal throughout. This is another one those special finds to come to us from the Sahara that would make for a great addition to any collection.
