ITQIY IN GOLD

Click the image above to explore all the details.

A 4.3 kilogram unusual black fusion-crusted stone was found in 2000 in southern Morocco by the Labenne family.  This unique meteorite (classified as an anomalous EH7 chondrite) is composed mostly of the pyroxene mineral enstatite along with iron-nickel metal.  This image highlights the interlocking arrangement of polygonal enstatite grains (varying in color from gray to golden) with smaller opaque grains of metal (black).

ITQIY IN BLUE

This image is made from the same meteorite specimen as the gold version above. A change in alignment of polarizing filters alters the birefringent spectrum of light passing through the slide, resulting in a dramatically different color palette
